Episode 30: Gary Borger on How Fly Fishing Strengthens Families

Fly fishing strengthens families. But does it really? Do families that fly fish together stay together? The outdoors in general and fly fishing in particular seem to give parents and their children a chance to communicate about something other than homework, screen, time, and household chores. Whether camping or hunting or fly fishing, the outdoors help families connect around a common interest. In Episode 30, we interview fly fishing legend Gary Borger, who consulted on the movie “A River Runs Through It,” on how fly fishing strengthens families.

  1. I think the information here is absolutely the best for bringing family together and staying together. I only wish to point out that sometimes, the parent or spouse is not the best teacher. I have taught the spouses of some of my best flyfishing bud’s. Some of these are good teachers for sports but not for family. Patience is sometimes not as apparent with family as it is with sports. Give your family the best instructions you can offer. This may mean hiring an instructor or asking one of your best buddies for help. Either way, make sure they truly enjoy the sport from the beginning. There are many things to learn and it will be in the growing of knowledge that you share for a lifetime. Novices will learn more thoroughly if you get a fish on their line from the first time out. When the fish catches the angler. Keep reading 2 Guys and a River, you will learn something every time you do.

  2. So true. So true. Parents often or usually are not the best teachers. Great, great point!
