If you’re like me you’re either fly fishing, fly tying or thinking about those two things. So it should come as no surprise that if I’m in my truck driving for any length of time or tying up a few clousers, I listen to fly fishing podcasts. I play them by using the web browser or one of several free apps on my phone, and Bluetooth them through the truck stereo or a portable speaker. During a two and a half hour drive to Detroit for business I can get in two or three good podcasts easily. A twelve hour drive to northern Minnesota and, well, let’s just say that’s a lot of podcast episodes. Last but not least, I can tie up a half dozen Meat Whistles while listening to the latest production. Whether the topic of discussion is fishing Christmas Island or tying panfish flies, I find it all interesting and much better than any “pop country” junk on the radio. Besides podcasts won’t cause my Labrador retriever, Fletcher, to howl like any song by Florida Georgia Line will.
I figured I would share some of Fletcher and I’s favorite podcasts as well as provide links to them for you to check out. Each link below (just click on the podcast name) will include several episodes of that particular podcast. They’ll be filled with everything from interviews with guides in British Columbia to fishing reports in Wisconsin. You’ll be entertained and most likely learn something, all in the same episode. I hope this list helps you pass the time on a long (or short) drive. Or maybe you’ll listen to it while tying your favorite dry fly at home. If you know of a great fly fishing podcast that isn’t listed, please share it in the comments below.
