Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/38 Editor of the FlyFish Journal, Steve Duda is on the podcast today to talk about how he became the editor of a unique fly fishing magazine, his passion for banjo and punk rock and why it's all about the experience for him.

mia and marty sheppard
Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/76 I met Mia and Marty on the Deschutes to chat about their background guiding and running a business in fly fishing.  We also go deep into John Day steelhead fishing and include some tips on getting started. They also run through some smallmouth bass fishing tips and trips.  They started as skate boarders and snow boarders and then transitioned into fly fishing.  Marty talks about the feeling of catching his first steelhead and what you need to get started.
blood knot
I show you how to tie a blood knot in today's fly fishing 101 video tutorial series.  The blood knot without question is one the the greatest fly fishing knots of all time. A knot that may be a little harder than some up front but is actually pretty easy once you practice a bit. It is used to tie leaders...
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...
proof fly fishing
Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/proof I had a nice chat with Matt Draft from Proof Fly Fishing to cover rod building.  Matt is all in on his company where he teaches, provides all of the pieces to the puzzle and has some great tutorials out there. We walk through the steps to build a new rod or retrofit an old rod.  There are a number of resources and video tutorials that are at Proof Fly Fishing.  We talk about what it will take to get into a Euro Nymphing rod as the example in this episode.
mark bachman
Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/mark I spent a day with Mark Bachman on the Sandy River looking for winter steelhead.  Within 10 minutes of putting the boat in the water we find ourselves stuck on a mid channel boulder in the first rapid. We look at the best setup for winter steelhead, talk about how to find fish and hear the story of how Mark made a business in fly fishing at Fly Fish USA.  Mark brings a hard exterior but after spending a day on the river with him I find out that he's a really good guy.
tenkara
I am very happy to share this episode with Luong Tam about Tenkara fly fishing.  Luong breaks down Tenkara and shares the reasons why many people catch more fish with Tenkara over traditional methods. Trust me, I was a little skeptical at first as well.  Have a listen and you will also get an amazing perspective from Luong about growing...
woolly worm
We are going back to basics today with the Woolly Worm.  One of the best first flies to begin with when starting out. I walk you through tying the woolly bugger in this video tutorial.  If you are new to fly tying then the best thing you can do is start with the basics. Whether a woolly worm or a woolly...
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...
