    Rare Waters - Fly Fishing UnLocked.

    Rare Waters - Fly Fishing UnLocked.

    Hogan sits down with RJ Hosking of Rare Waters. Rare Waters is a new online booking company similar to Air BnB working to connect anglers with private landowners on private waters throughout the West. While "private water" holds a very different connotation in California than other places in the West, what Rare Waters is doing by providing cheap ($125-175 a day) access to world-class fisheries throughout the West for the average angler is an interesting idea. Learn more about what Rare Waters offers and the larger Private vs. Public land debate taking place in many other western states, that fortunately, most of us in California don't have to worry about.

While Sturgeon are not top of any fly angler's list they are one of the coolest and most interesting fish in the river that fly anglers never fish for... with fly rods that is.

    James Stone - NCGASA (Nor Cal Guides and Sportsmens Association Director

    Hogan and James sit down and talk about the state of Nor Cal water storage as well as how the current winter is setting us up for the coming season. Then they get into the state and future of our salmon fisheries. While salmon are not always high on fly angler's list of species they are important to the health of many of our more popular fisheries ie. Trout and Steelhead. As well as being the most politically powerful fish in that the economic impact and angler participation is the highest among fish of concern in our state.

Good blend of educational and engaging

Whether you’re new to the pursuit of fly fishing or been around the block a couple times these guys do a solid job of providing insights, tips, and perspective. Great guests and thoughtful content. Keep up the good work!

Hogan has improved an already good podcast. I really appreciate the guests he is able to pull and his incomparable experience/knowledge.

Great start to a new podcast

I have listened to all of Hogan’s podcasts and each one is different. Even though they are different it doesn’t make them bad it makes them unique from most others out there. If you enjoy everything that goes into fly fishing this is for you. Thank you Hogan for doing these as it helps me on my 2.5 hours of driving 5 days a week. I can’t be in a river as much as I would like but listening to stories and others adventures definitely puts be in a happy place. Keep it up!
