PODCAST: Boat Fishing — How Everything Changes When Floating a River — S11, Ep5

by | May 12, 2024 | 2 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.

We’re here to talk about floating down a river, about why we like boats, how floating is so much different than wading, how some opportunities are uniquely available and how others are shut off too.

It’s the companionship and teamwork, along with the effort and commitment required to get down the river. It’s about a good lunch and friendly banter as much as the novel approach to tactics and the pure advantage of accessing more water.

From the put in to the take out, boating changes everything. It’s a wonderful way to learn a river and to connect with friends.

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: How Woodsmanship Catches Fish — S11, Ep6

There’s an intangible quality built into the best anglers. It’s about being comfortable and natural around the water. It’s about having an instinct and a guiding intuition on a river that informs decision without even giving it much thought. It’s an innate knowledge of the environment and what will happen next. Knowledge of the woods, water, weather and the trout comes together with ease and adds up to something that is hard to identify.

PODCAST: The Stages of an Angler — S11, Ep1

How many times have we heard the supposed stages of an angler? First you want to catch a fish, then you want to catch a bunch of fish, then you want to catch a big fish, then you want to catch the toughest fish, and then you just want to catch a fish again.

This is a clever way to look at a life on the water. But is it really true? This is our topic . . .

  1. Dom-you didn’t mention that in some waters across the country, you can use an outboard motor on a jon-boat. Many tailwaters can be accessed by boat and motor. Contrary to what some of the Troutbitten members said about catching more fish wading! As a general rule, you will catch more fish from a boat simply because you can cover more good water that holds more trout. One of the big advantages of wading is you can fish an area thoroughly where many times you only get one shot out of a boat. Sometimes to get a big fish to take your bug requires several drifts through the same lane. Fishing from a boat extends the life of older anglers who can no longer wade due to age and medical limitations. If you and the Troitbitten crew live long enough you will know exactly what I am talking about. Thank heavens we have trout waters across the country that we can fish from a boat.
