This week, based on my experience of getting skunked trout fishing, I thought I would give you 10 reasons for getting skunked.  I mainly concentrate on early season fishing—but these excuses are also good any time during the season! 

In the Fly Box section we talk about :

-over-lining fly rods,
-barbless hooks,
-laying fish on the grass to photograph them,
-matching leader with rod length,
-rod and blank weights,
-and some other fun stuff. 

Questions this week came from as far away as Australia and the UK, and as close as Connecticut.

This week in the fly box we discuss:

·       How stocking affects wild trout

·       Sinking lines

·       Casting exercises

·       Gripping a fly rod

·       Tangles after dark

·       Tom’s 5 favorite places to fish and the top 5 on his bucket list

In the main podcast, we do an extensive discussion of leaders—leader types, materials, , and how to modify your leader at streamside.  It’s a good topic for a refresher as fishing season is upon us in most places—or almost upon us!
