Fishing can be slow. Podcasts about fishing shouldn’t be. That’s why we created Bent, the unapologetic fishing podcast that moves faster than a tournament bass boat but doesn’t take itself near as seriously. Host Joe Cermele welcomes anglers of all backgrounds and interests, from hardcore crappie jiggers to dry-fly purists to offshore tuna addicts. Even if you’re just mildly fish curious, this podcast has something for you: regional fishing reports, tackle tips, trash talk, etymology, weekly news, trivia, even suggestions on how to piss off your fishing guide. Come for the soggy cooler sandwiches; stay for the raccoon-eyes tan lines. Part of The MeatEater Podcast Network.

    Grab some fine malt liquor and laugh along with Joe, Hayden, and the mighty Phil as the fellas bid a warm adieu to the podcast that made you feel the same kind of good as a Wendy’s Baconator the morning after getting the drunkest you’ve been since college.

    Ep. 86: Spanish Mackerel Pellet Heads

    This week, we celebrate opening day by tying every fly in the Wal-Mart trout starter pack on at the same time, ripping a spinner that could battle a salmon shark through the bridge hole, bumping a plastic hell bug in the last resort run, and turn a drinking straw into a limit catcher.

    Ep. 85: Pump Action Raccoon Streamers

    This week, we destroy the lives of old people in the name of great smallmouth fishing, purchase tying thread off a guy that likely stole it in an armed robbery, debate whether fish would rather have Uncle Ben’s or Rice-A-Roni jammed in their body cavities, and tell you why you should just buy whatever fly rod you can afford.

    Ep. 84: Bucktailing With My Carp Dealer

    This week, we travel the globe in Jeff Bezos’ version of the Tuggy sandbox, explain the importance of casting to where the fish are, arm ourselves with knowledge to ward of a plague of smallmouth bass, and cast handmade swimbaits into branches just slightly out of reach.

    Ep. 83: Hickory-Smoked Parachute Pants

    This week on “Trout Vest Aficionado,” we shame a young man for his lack of clinch knot skills, pat Timmy on the back for a super duper shad, discuss the graphic violence in “Old Man And The Sea,” and smash big tunas with the butterfly effect.
