Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/132 Jenny Weis provides us an update on the Pebble Mine project and what you can do this week to help protect almost 60 million salmon in one of the most important habitats in the region. We find out why this small project could become a much larger project if it's allowed to move forward.

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.

Landon breaks it down like a chess match so you can break it down easily to make your next move.
