    Innovator and Educator - Captain Mike Hogan

    Innovator and Educator - Captain Mike Hogan

    Hogy Lure Company was founded by Capt. Mike Hogan who designed and tweaked each product in the field. Capt. Mike has fished all over the country and has developed products and techniques along the way, all with big fish in mind.
    The company was started in 2004 when Capt. Mike left his office job in Boston and moved back to Cape Cod in order to get closer to fishing. He began running inshore and offshore charters again, focusing on trophy class fishing. He doesn’t use live or dead bait, so he found himself needing baits for very specific situations to compete with live bait anglers. As a result, he saw a demand for large-style soft baits that mimicked the larger baits he was trying to imitate. Capt. Mike spent many months working on the special blend of soft plastic and finally came up with the current plastic blend that Hogy Lure Company uses today. He immediately saw how effective large soft baits were both inshore and off-shore. Never intending to bring the new lures to market, Capt. Mike used them on his charters and gave them to his friends who referred to them as “Hogy's”
    Capt. Mike's first experience selling Hogy Lures was at a sportsman show in Massachusetts. He remembered the mountain of soft baits he had on the table at a time when he didn’t even have packaging. Much to his great pleasure, he sold out by early afternoon the first day. The same thing happened at the following show in Rhode Island. It was then that he knew he was on to something. In 2005, Hogy Lure Company was incorporated and later filed for a patent finally received in 2009.

    Captain Rene Letourneau - On The Rock Charters

    Captain Rene Letourneau - On The Rock Charters

    Rene is the consumate Captian. He can catch fish with the best of them, but he also provides a safe and fun experience. In that order. Nobody puts in more prep time into each trip than Rene. He works hard, has a long list of proven spots and he'll give it to you straight. If it could happen on the water from finding a school of squeteague to mechanical problems he's thought of it and is prepared with the right lure, fly or boat part whatever the case may be. 
    If you have fished with Rene you no doubt understand how deserving is of the Orvis 2020 Saltwater Guide of the Year honor.

    Kenney Abrames: An Artist Who Fishes

    Kenney Abrames: An Artist Who Fishes

    J. Kenney Abrames is a Rhode Island treasure. He is the author of Striper Moon and A Perfect Fish two of the seminal works in fly rodding for striped bass, but to describe Kenney as a striper fisherman is to sell him very short. He's a talented artist. First and foremost. He has sculpted a larger-than-life Jesus, done ornate theater ceilings and molding, written a couple of non-fishing books, and a house full of paintings including every fly in A Perfect Fish.
    Above all, he's a generous man. Always there with a wise word and encouragement. I am fortunate to call him my friend.
    Kenney has a blog here

    The Salty Side of Tom Rosenbauer

    The Salty Side of Tom Rosenbauer

    Tom Rosenbauer is the host of the Orvis Fly Fishing Podcast and has been with the Orvis Company for over 30 years, and while there has been a fishing school instructor, copywriter, public relations director, merchandise manager, editor of The Orvis News, and Marketing Director for Orvis Rod and Tackle. He is now the "Chief Enthusiast"
    Tom has more than ten fly fishing books in print, including The Orvis Fly-Tying Guide, which won a National Outdoor Book Award.
    When he was named Fly Rod & Reel magazine's Angler of the Year the magazine said:
    "People who meet him know the is as valid a fly fisherman as they come - honest, approachable, generous, dedicated, and enthusiastic."
    For a guy who has written ten books on fly fishing for trout Tom sure has a salty side which he describes:
    “I love false albacore, stripers. I have a love/hate relationship with tarpon, they get me all excited, but it’s a little too intense, and you can’t stalk them as much. I could give a ^*#@ about permit,” he said grinning. “As Steve Huff says, they’re a dishonest fish. You do everything right, and they still won’t eat the fly. Do everything right with a bonefish and they’ll usually eat.”
    Show Notes:
    We discuss Tom's fishing journey from Rochester NY to one of the most recognizable names in fly fishing.
    Tackle and tactics for striped bass on Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard.
    His favorite flies, and places to catch bonefish.
    A focused discussion on flats fishing with a fly rod and how striped bass and bonefish tactics have many similarities.

Gently teaching key information

Simply a fantastic listen. We are all truly ignorant in so many ways, but listening to Jenks and his guests helps make us all a little smarter about the surprising complex sport we love. Thank you for doing this podcast SWE, and thank you for the March plug shows!
