Scott Meter and Steve Borst from Black Dog Outdoor Sports are here to take us into the Delaware River system. We find out a little more about the history of the Catskills and this part of the country, which streamside guide is a must-have, and what their remote deer camp cabin is all about. We find out what’s the best time to fish the Delaware River and the different hatches you can take advantage of.

We also talk about what they have going at the shop and how they can get you started with almost any outdoor activity you want to explore. Here we go!
