PODCAST: A Troutbitten Glossary — S9, Ep10

by | Dec 24, 2023 | 11 comments

 The Troutbitten Podcast is available everywhere that you listen to your podcasts.

** Note **  The Podcast Player, along with links to your favorite players is below.

For this final episode of Season Ten and of 2023, we wanted  to have some fun. In this episode we walked through a bunch of Troutbitten . . . terms, words, sayings, phrases . . . and talked about what all of this means. Let’s call it a Troutbitten glossary.

If you’re lucky enough to have your own group of long-time fishing friends, then I’m sure you have your own phrases too — your own idioms and ways of talking about things. It’s all a lot of fun.

Long-time listeners understand what it means when Austin says he could have caught a lot more trout — if he really wanted to. Most of you also understand what it means to play bartender for a friend, and you know how many inches a trout should be to fall under the Troutbitten classification, Whiskey.

Our lingo is part of the Troutbitten culture. Here we go . . .

Hi. I’m a father of two young boys, a husband, author, fly fishing guide and a musician. I fish for wild brown trout in the cool limestone waters of Central Pennsylvania year round. This is my home, and I love it. Friends. Family. And the river.

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #6 — Line On the Water — S10, Ep6

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #6 — Line On the Water — S10, Ep6

This episode is about tension and slack. It’s about how we manage fly lines and leaders on the water while nymphing. My friend, Austin Dando, joins me to walk through the tight line advantage of keeping line off the water and what happens when we give that up. Fishing greater distances often requires laying line on the water, and how we manage that line, how we plan for it, makes all the difference between a great drift and a poor one . . .

One-On-One Virtual Skills Sessions are Here

After months of work and preparation, I’m pleased to announce the launch of Troutbitten One-On-One Virtual Skills Sessions. This latest arm of the Troutbitten Project allows for greater connection with more anglers, readers, listeners and viewers than ever before.

These one-on-one skills sessions are held in our Troutbitten online studio, where we record the Troutbitten Podcast. Conversations are tailored to fit your interests, your questions and curiosities. These sessions are recorded (for your use only), and afterward, you’ll receive a video of our meeting, along with notes and links to more Troutbitten resources to help you keep learning.

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #5 — Weight: The Fundamental Factor — S10, Ep5

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #5 — Weight: The Fundamental Factor — S10, Ep5

Once you leave the water’s surface, weight is necessary for the presentation. Here’s what weights to choose, for nymphing, why and when. You can’t avoid it. Weight is the fundamental factor. Meaning, it’s probably more important than the fly itself. More weight or less is more consequential than what dubbing, feather or ribbing is wound around the hook shank.

We use all types of weight, and there are good reasons for all of these: tungsten beads, split shot and drop shot . . .

STREAMSIDE: MidCurrent Features 1 Million Troutbitten Podcast Downloads (an Interview with Dom)

A few weeks ago, the Troutbitten Podcast crossed the 1 Million downloads milestone. Spencer Durrant, the news editor for Midcurrent and host of the Unhooked Podcast, got in touch to ask if I’d answer a few questions for the occasion.

The Midcurrent publication is part of the glue that binds this industry together, so I was happy to oblige. Answering these questions also got me thinking about where this Troutbitten Project has been and where it’s going.

So as Troutbitten enters the year of its tenth anniversary, here’s a look into one of our favorite branches of this Troutbitten media company and how it became so important to the Troutbitten community . . .

  1. For some reason it’s always been “Yahtzee!” on hook up. Great pod fellas. Look forward to all those to come in the new year.

  2. That was a fun cast. Next year you should post a video of the feats of strength to your Youtube page.

    Conquer is a new one for me. I have done this on foot to more than a few assholes determined to high hole me.

    Thanks for the content!

  3. Enjoyed the Podcast guys! Some fishing terms my friends and I have used throughout years of fishing. A hook up-Fish On or Bingo. A small fish-a dink. I have a Dink on the end of my line. For big fish-I have Melvin on the end of my line. A fish that gets off during the fight- A lost opportunity. My friends and I are more interested in hookups than fish brought to the net. In fact, we rarely net a fish at all unless we are taking a photo. We just reach down and remove the barbless fly and send the fish on its way. More anglers should do this instead of netting a fish. Another term I have used throughout my life is- the fishing is good but the catching is poor. Of course, a poor day of fishing is always better than a great day at the office.

  4. When we have a bad day of re-tying our rigs we like to say “We’re knitting a lot” or asking our friend if they’re knitting a sweater if they take a long time tying. If we keep hooking a lot of weeds or green “stuff” we’re “catching a lot of lettuce” today.

    Great podcast and love the Sloop addition. Love the friendly banter you guys have together.

  5. “Hey Now” was the catch phrase of Jeffrey Tambor’s character Hank on the Larry Shandling show. Howard Stern was a big fan of the show and immediately took to repeating it on his show.

  6. I laughed at the things you all say when a fish is on. My fishin buddy alway whoops it up and yells “he’s a fighter!”, even when he has a dinky 6 incher on. For me it’s always been “come to papa!”.

  7. My hookup phrase:
    Sweet Fancy Moses!
