5. The Open Fly
Billed as a podcast for “nymphers, strippers, and swingers”, this lighthearted series is hosted by Washington state-based fly fishing veterans Evan Burk, Kirk Werner, and Derek Young. It touches on everything from guide interviews and conservation issues to listener questions and more “spontanious topics pertaining to but not limited to instructional tips, gear discussion, and bacon.” Enjoy!
