Best fly fishing podcast on the internet
This is the best fly fishing podcast on the internet - great guests and provocative topics!
Dave has lots of interesting and knowledgeable guests on. If you don’t live in the PNW, some of it might be a little irrelevant, but even from Colorado I find many of his episodes interesting. My only holdup is that I wish there were less fly tying content. Nothing against the guests or fly tying in general, I just feel like it’s a hard topic to cover well via audio. Other than that, great show!
