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!
