A Must Listen
Zach is a great host and has one of the best fly fishing shows going. He’s an average guy who just happens to love the sport. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and knows how to interview. The guests are varied and the topics are always fresh.
Oh and new opening and closing music each episode is a great touch. A lot of care seems to go into it and it’s a great addition to the show
Excellent format and interesting guests. Always enjoy!
