I’m a fan of podcasts, have been for years. Podcasts fill the drive time, the late night hours of getting work done and other free time when I’m jamming to music.
When it comes to podcasts and fly fishing, the podcast pickings are kinda slim, but what is out there is pretty epic and you shouldn’t miss them. Here are 3 fly fishing podcasts that should certainly be providing you some listening enjoyment.
The Orvis Fly Fishing Guide Podcast
Hands down the best fly fishing podcast out there. Tom Rosenbauer sits down, talks fly fishing and drops the knowledge. It’s a really good mix of conversation and listener questions/emails. The topics are a good mix and Tom usually covers everything from gear, to fly tying, to specific techniques for whatever flavor of finned goodness you’re trying to chase.
I usually learn something during every single episode of this podcast and it’s been around for quite a while, so the back catalog can literally provide hours of listening goodness.
The Itinerant Angler
Another great fly fishing podcast that is always awesome to listen to. TIA is hosted by Zach Matthews and Zach does a great job of offering up good topics, useful info and some interesting interviews.
Like the Orvis podcast, this one has been around for a while so the back catalog is pretty awesome for going back and cherry picking some useful info and good interviews.
The Fly Fishing Consultant Podcast
This podcast is pretty cool as well and is hosted by Rob Snowhite, a D.C. fly fishing guide. Like the other two podcasts, the topics vary but the shows are usually pretty useful with some good information.
Rob has a little different style, which I happen to like. It’s a good mix of humor, storytelling and info packed up into a podcast that is pretty enjoyable to listen to. Rob knows his stuff, but keeps the topics entertaining and easy to listen to. Rob also has quite a large back catalog that can easily kill off several hours of time if needed.
