Adam Cutthriel is back on the podcast to take us into one of the great steelhead rivers around the world. We discover how he was able to put together one of the only programs in this part of Alaska, in Kodiak. We find out how and why you might want to book a spot with Adam and the FishHound crew. And we also hear about their recent trip to Honduras with Cam, one of his main Guides.

Every time I get Adam on the show, it’s always a good time, good laughs so I’m excited to share this one with you. Here we go.
