S2:E44 10 Fly Fishing Proverbs for the Soul

Fly fishing proverbs are everywhere. In conversations at the fly shop. In stories after a big day on the river. And in books from our sport’s great fly fishing legends. In this fun episode, we lift ten fly fishing proverbs from the sayings of some of our great fly fishers and regale each other with stories about their truths. Proverbs are aphorisms, short statements packed with wisdom and, sometimes, humor. Steve even adds one of his own proverbs at the end of the episode for the cherry on top!

      • That’s awesome. I also liked the “give a kid a video game and entertain him for a day, teach a kid to fish and entertain him for life” proverb from an older podcast.
