I sat down with Louis Cahill from Gink and Gasoline who has been leading the way in the online fly fishing space for a long time now.  Louis shares the story of how they decided to start blogging every day and have not stopped since 2011.

We hear about some of the blogs that were popular in 2011 and helped pave the way for G and G and why Louis is still going after all of these years.  We also find out how Louis almost gave up Gink and Gasoline after he got trolled around political topics.
