Sinking into a podcast while tying flies or traveling to the river is one of my favorite ways to relax and learn something at the same time.
Reno Fly Shop has put out some fantastic podcasts lately, and their latest two part — nearly two hour — chat with Kelly Galloup sets a new standard for this type of conversational episode.
If you’re a streamer junkie — strike that — if you like fishing, then you’ll enjoy listening to Galloup’s jocular reflections. If you know Kelly then you won’t be surprised to find him candid and amusing in both episodes. This is how podcasts should be done.
A few highlights …
— Why Galloup agrees that a lot of fly guys are assholes.
— Galloup’s take on competition fly fishing.
— Galloup says, “Stalk more. Cast less,” and “Hunt it, don’t hope it.”
— Question: Do big articulated streamers allow you to catch bigger fish? Galloup: “No.”
— Why Galloup says real fish always, always, always eat the head first.
Find the podcast at Reno Fly Shop’s website, on iTunes, or wherever you get your podcasts.
Thanks to Reno Fly Shop for the entertainment and education on our way to the rivers.
Enjoy the day.
