    Filming Deadliest Catch

    Filming Deadliest Catch

    Catching king crab on the Bering Sea in the winter is one of the most dangerous maritime jobs on the planet full of 50-foot seas, hurricane-force winds, frozen rain, pitching decks, dangling crab pots and hot tempers. The conditions and characters involved has propelled the television show Deadliest Catch to high ratings for nearly 20 years. In this podcast, we hear from Clark McNulty, who spent last winter working as a cameraman for the show. As a longtime spear-fisherman from Southern California, Clark is no stranger to boats and fishing, but his experience on the show was unlike anything else he's ever done. If you have ever watched the show and been intrigued by the men, the boats and the conditions, you will enjoy this episode of the Anglers Journal Podcast.

    Lords of the Fly: World-Record Tarpon

    Lords of the Fly: World-Record Tarpon

    Longtime fly-fisherman and bestselling author, Monte Burke, sits down to talk about his latest book, Lords of the Fly: Madness, Obsession, and the Hunt for the World Record Tarpon, the thrilling story of the men who chased world-record tarpon on a fly rod. Few gamefish challenge fly anglers like the tarpon, a high-flying, tackle destroying beast that prowls the flats and backcountry waters. But in the annals of tarpon fishing, one period stands out as the best ever known. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, something unique happened in the quiet little town of Homosassa, Florida. Giant, triple-digit tarpon showed up and so did the best fly anglers in the world — Lefty Kreh, Stu Apte, Ted Williams, Tom Evans, Billy Pate, and others — gathered together to try and catch the world record tarpon. In doing so, they battled beasts on a daily basis and unveiled a never-before-seen competition for a fishing accolade that has alluded so many. Listen in as Monte talks about the men he met in his research, the fish he saw, the history lessons he learned and the process needed to report on such a unique time in fishing history.
    Filled with larger-than-life characters and vivid prose, Lords of the Fly is not only a must read for fly anglers, but anyone who longs to better understand the obsessions of an angler on a quest for a world record.

    Seeking Tranquility

    Seeking Tranquility

    When it comes to fishing, less is often more. To free yourself from the noise of the rat race and tune into the scenes and smells around you.

"Time unspools slowly when you're off the clock, your cellphone is powered down and no one is expecting you back at a specified time," he says. But away the extraneous and take a listen.
