Love it!

You guys rock! I have learned so much from your show and can’t say enough good things about it! I’ve been fly fishing freshwater for a few years but since moving to San Diego I haven’t gone but now I’m desperate to go out and try it on the Saltwater. Love the show, and if you every take people out please take me!!!

Great Info from Al Q

This is a fantastic and insightful episode. I spent many hours chasing Corbina at La Conchita this summer. I wish I had listened to this in June when it was aired!! Keep it coming!
