    Whitney Tilt Executive Director of the AFFTA Fisheries Fund

    Whitney Tilt the Executive Director of the AFFTA Fisheries Fund stops by to talk about what the organization is up to. Hogan and Whitney take a look at this year's Grants that have been given out, why conservation at a national level to a local level is important, and why it is important we all get involved on some level in protecting our fisheries and wild places. 

    The AFFTA Fisheries Fund was established in 2014 as a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit to advance the stewardship and conservation mission of the American Fly Fishing Trade Association. The Fisheries Fund serves as an arm of AFFTA laser-focused on conservation and stewardship, as we seek to leverage the full weight of the flyfishing industry in the fight to protect and restore our fisheries, amplify the industry’s conservation voice, and provide powerful business support for critical conservation issues.

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!

boring and irritating

just a boring bro-chat with not much useful content. I tried to count the number of “you know” fillers and lost track after 20 in a single minute.
