The podcast to save fishing!

I love how Hunter covers the history of fishing, the ethics of fishing, and planning out the future for a better fishing community

Rick Ruoff

First and foremost, Rick is my good friend. He fished my Dad for many years up until the year he passed. That year they caught Tarpon on fly. When he passed he was instrumental in helping me spread his ashes where he loved to be.
Rick and I have been fishing together ( second generation) for a hell of a long time. We always manage to work dome days in to his busy schedule. Rick is an amazing fisherman full of knowledge and stories, and when we fish together we share do many. Rick is a class act. Thank you for a great podcast.

Perfect for the avid angler on the days we can’t get out

Found this podcast and listened to it for 10 hours a day at work until I was caught up. Great information and insight from industry legends and respected captains from all over. If you’re someone who wants to share your passion for the water with others, this podcast is a great handbook. Awesome work!
