  1. Just now ran across your web site and wanted to let you know how refreshing it is to read the various article you have written with so much humility. No “Fly Fishing Snobbery” to be found here, just simple, common sense articles that give good advice on a subject too often unnecessarily shrouded in a fog of snobbery and elitism.

    Way to go guys, you bring Fly Fishing in an interesting, entertaining way to the masses.

    Jim Watson

    1. Thanks so much, Jim (and sorry that we missed replying to this comment earlier). We consider ourselves “veteran beginners,” and this blog project has helped us grow in our understanding. It’s a privilege to try to communicate in the way you described–interesting, entertaining, and accessible to all kinds of people, especially those who are new to fly fishing.

  2. In this day of super-aggressive “ripping lips” culture, it is very refreshing to hear you talk of your love of fly fishing with such humility. I’ve deeply appreciated several of your episodes, and while there such good tech information, I have been especially touched by the way you have honored your fathers, the respect you have for each other, and the perspective you have on the sport we all love. Keep up the good work!

  3. Thank-you so much for your podcast. I took up fly fishing in March (I haven’t fished in over 35 yrs) and recently completed ‘the slam’ in CO last week! Your podcast was my primary source of instruction and I just ordered your book.

    Keep up the great work, you guys are the best source of tips and teaching BY FAR!

    Todd Gray

  4. Hi Guys!

    Love the book and the podcasts. I’ve learned so much and really enjoy your easygoing style. Here is my request for a “list”: what are your top five casting videos? Here in Colorado I am pretty much at the winter lull but I can practice casting on nice days. I’d love your suggestions.

    Thanks so much and keep it going!
