bill spicer
Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/93 Bill Spicer host of The New Fly Fisher breaks down musky fishing and some great tips to get you into a chance for a big fish.  We talk about the best lakes to target musky, the gear you need to have a chance and how to revive a tired fish. Bill describes the biggest difference between pike and musky, why he uses marker buoys and how a musky can melt a stainless steel hook.  Lots of good stuff including where to go for more resources to hook some musky.
mending the line
When I started out swinging flies with a spey rod, my cast wasn’t great.  In fact, it pretty much sucked.  But, because mending the line with the spey is pretty easy (think length), I was able to turn a bad cast into a great cast. After I piled my crappy cast out there, I only needed to pick up and turn over...
wind knots
One of the things you will learn about steelhead fly fishing is that sometimes you can put in a lot of time for one shot at a fish.  That one pull that you put in 40 hours for.  You will likely be logging a lot of time and effort until you get that next hookup. I want you to be ready...

fly line
Yes, Sick.  I can throw that out there now because I've had quite the embarrassing week...... and to be honest, Sick just sounds about right. I just returned from a Casting Instructor Class with the Federation of Fly Fishers and had an eye opening experience. Not because of the challenge, although becoming a casting instructor is a major challenge, but because I was...
kelly galloup
Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/52 I had the pleasure of interviewing Kelly Galloup, the man who changed the streamer game back in the day with the book Modern Streamers.  We talk about his youtube channel and the large resource for fly tyers, his porn fly names, walking the dog with bass fishing and other techniques on making the fish react.  This one was crazy good and a ride I could have kept on.  Hope you enjoy.
false casting
Do you remember the greatest fly fishing movie of all time?  Yeah, I'm sure you do - A River........, well you know the rest.  If not, watch the video clip below.  Remember that seen where Norman is false casting away - something about enticing a fish to rise. Well, that's not reality.  In realtiy or in steelhead fly fishing reality...

dry fly fishing
I was dry fly fishing in Montana a number of years ago on a small trout stream outside of Missoula. There was this crazy hatch going on and the fish were on it.  We were approaching dark so every cast felt critical as we ran out of time. Myself and another buddy were picking up some nice fish.  But Ryan, our...
sharpen your hook
Do you sharpen your hook on a regular basis?   A fish's mouth is hard and tough.  Although steelhead often hit like a freight train, they can also take super subtly.  Just as light as a tip-tap is sometimes all you feel.  Take a look at Tip #1 here for clarification. A sharp hook can mean the difference between just getting...
