WFS 036 – Skip Morris Interview – Fly Fishing, Fly Tying, West Slope Cutthroat Trout and Lochsa River IdahoDave -
Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/36 I had Skip Morris on the show to talk about trout fishing, fly tying the Lochsa River and a bunch of tips to improved your game. We talk about the power of the woman in fly fishing and hear about Skip's background publishing 18 books to date. Skip talks about his biggest influences and some great stories from Alaska, bears and a whale that almost took him down.
Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/35 I had a great interview with Davy Wotton on Wet Fly Fishing and his long history around fly fishing. He guides on the White River in Arkansas where he has been for 20 years. We talk about what the biggest struggle is with wet fly fishing and ways to overcome these concerns. Davy talks about fishing a "cast" of flies that might include 4 flies on one leader.

Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/phil-rowley-stillwater-fly-fishing/ I had the pleasure of interviewing Phil Rowley to discuss stillwater trout fishing. We covered sinking lines, rod length for lakes, how to match the hatch, fly tying and chironomid behavior on top of much more. To be totally honest I've been a little out of the loop on lakes as of late and Phil sheds light on a number of techniques that I have never used before. You don't want to miss this episode if you are interested in fly fishing lakes!
