This week we have a full Fly Box (the only way to be at the beginning of the season!) and cover topics that range from how to store leaders to figuring out stream depths to safe handling of fish in cold water to fishing streamers with switch rods. And lots more. I even try to answer the question of whether I’d prefer to have 6 less expensive fly rods or three top-of-the-line ones. That question caused me some soul-searching and I waffled a bit—but who cares what I’d do anyway? To top it off, we have an inspirational interview with a 17-year-old fly fisher, Joey Maxim. Make sure you listen to all of the interview, because the story gets more interesting as we talk.

This week’s podcast ends on a somber note with the passing of our good friend and mentor John Merwin, one of the greatest voices in fly fishing. I think you’ll enjoy a few memories of John and the readings from a couple of his pieces. But up front we have a very full fly box—lots of e-mails and phone calls on casting problems, fly tying problems and solutions, picking tackle, and fishing nymphs.
