I had the pleasure of sitting down with Riverhorse Nakadate to talk about largemouth bass, redfish and southern Texas Fly Fishing.

Riverhorse goes deep to share his story and how he’s made a life as a writer, surfer, musician and fly fisherman.  Get ready for a little bass yoga, comedy and stories about Willie, Stevie Ray and Love.

  1. I really enjoyed the podcast with Riverhorse. I went to the Fly Fish Journal right after the podcast and subscribed for a year… I don’t know how to live with that much soul.

    • Thanks Earl. So cool to hear you are going to check out the journal and supporting it. Yeah, Riverhorse is pretty unique. It was a lot of fun for me as well.
