  1. Great podcast and a lot of truth to this, being good in fly fishing (enjoying what you do) and overthinking it (frustrating yourself) is like not being able to see the forest from the trees. every aspect of the sport has no boundaries. Everyone writes their own rules. To use a sports analogy you can swing for the fences or try to bunt your way to first. I would like a podcast on different leaders, I recently tried braided leaders, frustrated myself and went to tapered mono 👍

    • Thanks, Jim! We’ll consider a podcast on leaders. It may need to be an interview with an expert (we have a guide-friend in mind) because neither Dave or I have ventured into the world of braided and home-made leaders. As long as we’re catching fish, we’re fine with the tapered mono leaders we buy at our local fly shop!
