242: Outdoors Lessons from Our Fathers

Parents, both mothers and fathers, play an inordinate role in the belief systems and destiny of their children. This weekend is Father’s Day Weekend, and so we wanted to share the lessons from our fathers while hunting and fishing in the great outdoors.

In this episode, we select three lessons each (six total) that our fathers taught us while we hunted and fished. Neither of our fathers was a fly fisher, but both loved to hunt and fish. Their legacy lives on in our lives.


Great Stuff from Our Listeners.

PURCHASE OUR BOOK ON FLY FISHING HACKS – It’s a collection of great tips and ideas

Fly fishing is a lot more than simply learning how to cast.

There are thousands of techniques and hacks that can help you catch more fish.

Often, it’s the little things that make a big difference, increasing your enjoyment of the sport.

This book is a must-read for folks who prefer to scan lists and find new ways to catch more fish. Read one list, and, like a handful of peanuts, you won’t be able to stop at one.
