Wet Fly Swing Fly Fishing Podcast

Feb 20, 2018

Show Notes:

In episode 010 of the fly fishing show I interviewed Rob Bryce to talk about fly fishing the Skeena system.  We covered the Morice River, Bulkley River as well as the Babine River and the Kispiox River.

We covered how to fish the Morice in depth, talked about steelhead life histories as well as some great stories about the Babine River.  Also I tell one of my personal stores about how we dropped into the Babine Canyon for the adventure of a lifetime.
