Troutbitten on the Unhooked Podcast

by | May 2, 2021 | 2 comments

I was pleased to be one of Spencer Durrant‘s first guests on his new Unhooked podcast. We talked back in late March, and the conversation is now published and live. (Links are at the end of this article.)

Spencer Durrant is a long time guide and author in the fly fishing industry. I’ve read much of his work through the years, so I happily agreed to the discussion.

It’s a casual conversation of about an hour. We talk about some of the differences between our fishing regions, how and why trout are more selective in certain places, and finding the balance between the pursuit of knowledge vs a pure enjoyment on the river.

You can find Episode 2 of Spencer Durrant: Unhooked at the links below:

Thanks again to Spencer for a great conversation.

Fish hard, friends.

 

Enjoy the day.

Troutbitten on the WadeOutThere Podcast

Troutbitten on the WadeOutThere Podcast

I had the pleasure of talking shop with Jason Shemchuk of the WadeOutThere podcast. It’s a tactical but casual conversation that digs deep. I probably talked too fast and too often, and I got excited about the material, as usual. But those who know me will tell you that this is about as much DOM as there is anywhere on tape. That’s a tribute to Jason, because he’s easy to talk with and steers an interview with grace . . .

Leaders in the Troutbitten Shop

Leaders in the Troutbitten Shop

Troutbitten leaders are now available in the Troutbitten Shop. These are hand tied leaders in four varieties: Harvey Dry Leader, Standard Mono Rig, Thin Mono Rig, and Micro-Thin Mono Rig. Standard Sighters are also available, and they include a Backing Barrel. The Full Mono Rig Kit contains each of the three Mono Rig leaders.

All Troutbitten leaders come on a three-inch spool, making long leader changes a breeze.

The Troutbitten Shop Launches: Tees, Hoodies, Hats, Stickers and Canvas Prints

The Troutbitten Shop Launches: Tees, Hoodies, Hats, Stickers and Canvas Prints

Today marks the completion of a significant Troutbitten project. After a full year in development, the Troutbitten Shop has launched. For sure, this is the conclusion of one phase and the beginning of another, as I’ll continue to add designs and products for the shop in the coming seasons.

The Troutbitten Shop starts with tees, hoodies, hats, stickers and canvas prints. These items feature logos and original designs, artfully printed on high end materials. I took no shortcuts.

Troutbitten has grown from the seeds of your support. Troutbitten readers have made all of this possible, and I’m thankful to be part of a community of anglers who live a life on the water.

I invite you to look around the shop a bit. I’m proud of what is here, and I’m excited for the future.

Here’s a quick rundown of the shop parts . . .

Troutbitten Featured in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Troutbitten Featured in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette

My friend, Steve, texted me yesterday to ask if I knew that my name was in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette sports section. Since my mediocre Little League baseball career ended at twelve years old, I’d figured that my chances at making the sports section of any paper were shot. But to my surprise, there it was, both online and printed in the Sunday paper.

And I have to admit that it makes me smile. I grew up reading the PPG, and I still do. As a home grown western Pennsylvania boy, I follow my Steelers, Penguins and Pirates with devotion.

  1. Its interesting how upset the WEstern guides get when they experience fishing around other people. That is totally a representative of the population in their areas, and the cause of so many of our crowded streams. You didn’t even get into the water rights issues which affect Easter waters more than in the West. You have to get him fishing in your waters and have the two of you do a follow up show. Of course, you should fish his waters with him also.
