I had a chance to pick the brain of Gary Lewis, TV Show host of Frontier Unlimited and an author of a bunch of books and articles on fly fishing and hunting.
We talk about the MacNab challenge, Hunt Tv, the Pursuit Channel and how he found himself on the cover of Salmon, Trout Steelheader and made a living writing about the outdoors. Lot’s of good stuff as we mix it up again this week.

Conclusion with Gary Lewis
That was great to mix it up a bit with Gary Lewis. The MacNab challenge was really of interest to me because getting a steelhead, chukar and deer in the same day is a crazy challenge.
Gary also provides some good tips on hunting and fishing. Head over to Frontier Unlimited to check out Gary’s TV show.

Gary is absolutely Right!
Fly fishing goes side by side when we go on big game hunting tour in Texas, with a little bit of small game hunting. Usually, we have few fishing experts and almost all are licensed hunters.
