Fly Fishing Podcasts  

Posted by Matt Rise






I love podcasts.....financial podcasts, political podcasts, religious podcasts, tech podcasts, and especially fly fishing podcasts. (I'm listening to This Week in Google right now I now work from home and am able to get my Google reader through work in my office.

Fly fishing podcasts are great to get you through the winter. When you can't fish, the next best thing is reading, watching, and listening to fly fishing. They introduce you to new techniques, destinations, and are entertaining.

Here are the podcasts that I "tune" in to:

Fly Fish Radio
The site is up, but I get malware warning in firefox and chrome.....IE lets me straight through. Visit at your own risk.

The original fly fishing pod cast. Great info and the hosts Mike Overton and Wylie Thomas did a fairly good job in producing the show. Their interviewing skills got better as the episodes when on. They haven't put a podcast out in like...... forever, but check out the archives. The early shows with Norm Albiston were great....must listens. If they aren't up, I'm going to post them to my Google Reader Shared Items. I'm not sure if they are podcasting anymore. They also have some fly tying tutorial videos on the site as well.

Ask About Fly Fishing
This podcast is regularly updated (almost weekly), wide topics (think more than just trout talk), and PRIZES!!! The shows are basically interviews with fly fishing personalities. D. Roger Maves is the host and from Colorado. What he lacks in interviewing skill, he makes up with a huge amount of information. The show is 90 minutes long with a few commercials interspersed. He recently had a show with Charlie Craven on fly tying. John Barr, Brad Befus, and Brian O'Keefe have been past guests as well. Great stuff, I hope that Mr. Maves keeps it up. The show is streamed live so you can ask questions of the guests.

The Orvis Fly Fishing Guide Podcast
Commercial, polished, and shorter podcast. The other podcasts are 30 to 90 minutes, whereas Orvis is about 10 minutes. Tom Rosenbauer, long time Orvisite, is the host. Where the previous two podcasts are amateurish, the Orvis FFGP, is definitely professional. The show takes questions from subscribers and Tom answers them. Tom is great to listen to with his personal stories of triumph and failure. Most of the topics are around trout, but does go in to saltwater with some great episodes on fly fishing techniques (casting, knots, equipment, etc). The show pushes Orvis stuff, but it's not annoying or obtrusive.

Subscribe to a few podcasts, download and save them for the long cold winter ahead.

Do you know of any fly fishing podcasts? Let me know in the comments.

The Top Five Casting Mistakes Fly Fishers Make  

Posted by Matt Rise

I do everyone of these mistakes....sometimes one at a time....sometime every one on a single cast. Then I end up cutting off the fly, some tippett, and retying everything. And it never fails that the fish are rising like crazy then too.

How many false casts do you make before your fly hits the water? According to Tom, the biggest mistake fly fishers make is too many false casts. Find out his other four in this podcast.
