    Covering Water + a 5-minute Meditation

    Covering Water + a 5-minute Meditation

    Daniel talks through his process of covering water while fly-fishing: how to approach it, tips on stealth, dealing with wind, and how to cover water to maximize opportunities to catch fish.
    We all think of fly-fishing as a form of meditation, but perhaps we can't (or shouldn't?) get to the water for now, so this time we are trying something different and at the end of the episode Daniel does a 5-minute guided meditation with you.

    How to Find and Explore New Fishing Waters

    How to Find and Explore New Fishing Waters

    It is important that we find a bit of serenity and peace at the moment, and tenkara fly-fishing might be just the thing to help with that. As we are asked to stay at or close to home these days, this episode focuses on encouraging you to go fishing in the waters you may have overlooked, or to find new waters within each reach to go fishing. Daniel shares a couple of tools he uses when scouting for prospective waters, and how we may have to redefine the idea of "tenkara-perfect" waters at the moment.

Tenkara content

Love your program. I have a Tenkara rod and I need to use it a lot more.

You had me at tenkara

As a novice fly fisher, I’m quite enjoying this informative podcast. The only thing I would say is, I wish the host would spend a bit less time talking about what he’s planning to talk about. I already hit play because the given topic sounded interesting, you don’t need to justify why you chose it. Keep it coming though, I’ll keep listening. I’m definitely interested in upgrading to one of your rods soon.
