    Tangled Lines!

    Tangled Lines!

    Coach Dale "Diesel" Collins, Bobby "The Bearded Wonder" Bennett, and Shannon "Big Mess" Messer host special guest Jeff Downing, author of "Tangled Lines"!

    Jeff dives into why he wrote Tangled Lines and how fly fishing became the backstory of this book.  Jeff is a native Pennsylvanian who has some great stories of fishing the Little Lehigh River.   I highly recommend this book.  It is a murder mystery that you could envision happening today.  Jeff's years of experience as a federal prosecutor help him develop scenarios that actually could happen. I think that many of us can relate to Thax Colby as he enjoys his time of the stream fly fishing as an escape or time to clear his mind.

    To pick up a copy of Tangled Lines visit https://www.amazon.com/Tangled-Lines-Jeff-Downing/dp/0999687808

Great podcast, with one suggestion

I love the show, especially the episodes where they accidentally talk about fly fishing for a few minutes in the middle of their ESPN weekly sports review podcast. How about more fishing and a lot less foozball?

Top notch!

Tuck Fly Shop has nailed it with their podcast. Genuine, full of expertise plus laughs and simply well done. Always a pleasure listening and learning.

Great podcast!

Fantastic Podcast, this is why we at Norvise decided to sponsor several episodes. Shannon, Dale and Bobby actually have me laughing out loud some times when they get going. Funny at it is informative, this is one podcast I look forward to each week. Give the “Tuck Cast with a Splash of Bourbon” a listen, you will be glad you did.
