245: Summer Wearables for Fly Fishing Comfort

fly fishing podcast

Fly fishing comfort in summer simply requires a few basic items of clothing. Certainly dry-fit clothing is at the top of the list.

So is a water-resistant cap or hat.

In this episode, we offer up our short list of basic summer wear. And we also reveal our deep disappointment that we may never be Simms models. Steve may have to fire Dave as his podcast partner before Simms takes Steve’s modeling aspirations seriously.

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.

238: Best All Around Fly Rod for Normal Folk

fly fishing podcast

The best all around fly rod is up for debate. The answer is, of course, it depends. Many fly fishers have more than one rod, but if you had to choose, which would be the best all around fly rod?

In this episode, we make a case for the nine-foot, five-weight or nine-foot six-weight rod as the best all around fly rod. However, if you’re fishing smaller creeks, you may want to consider an eight-and-a-half four-weight fly rod.
