    Jessie Krebs is a former US Air Force SERE specialist who believes that skills combined with preparation allow for a deeper connection to the wilderness. Sere stands for Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape—all things that sound mildly terrifying to the average person. But Jessie is the opposite of those things. She is warm, patient, thoughtful and kind… most of all, she’s inspiring. 
    In this episode of Anchored, I sit down with Jessie to learn more about basic survival techniques that a recreational angler may run into to. During our conversation, Jessie shares her past and confronts the uncomfortable topic of abuse and barriers that are typically not discussed in the outdoor world.

Emily Rodger Interview

This was an amazing interview. Although I have followed Emily Roger on Instagram for a few years now, I did not know much of her backstory and had lost track a bit over the last year. Her story is amazing in itself, but I also admire the both of you for the courage when you came across issues that you thought might cause some backlash from listeners. I thought those moments were special and exemplify your characters as humans.

Katie Fiedler-Anderson

Thank you so much for doing this episode!! I am a mom of a 5 month old and a 2 year old and have not been able to hunt or fish for 2 years but am looking to get back out and start bringing my girls. I am a first generation hunter and fisher and would love to be able to feel more comfortable and confident in the woods and on the water. Any educational resources you could think of would be greatly appreciated!! This show has already been a great start!

Loved this interview with Skip. We once fished an evening together in Northern CA and he was gracious enough to share a few flies with me
