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!
