Wet Fly Swing Fly Fishing Podcast

Dec 18, 2018

Show Notes:

I had the pleasure of interviewing Elliott Adler - the host of the DrakeCast, one of the biggest fly fishing podcasts in the world.  Elliott recently announced that he is leaving the DrakeCast.

We talk about the media industry, his take on Team USA fly fishing, and how the Drakecast came to be.  It was fun to get his perspective on a number of issues in fly fishing and story telling.
