In this episode, I share a trick that was taught to me by a guide on the Green River, Utah. In his case, we floated with only a high float and had two anglers fishing off the side of the boat as it was perpendicular to the river flow. The idea was to get two long and sustainable drifts in two river sections while managing the drift for us as much as he could. I've since adopted his tip and added a dropper scenario.
Your host, Christian Bacasa, speaks with Will Korte. Will resides in Tampa Bay, Florida, owns 727 Angler Blog, and regularly fishes the entire southern half of Florida. The blog is full of knowledge on the area, but the mastermind behind it joins us to fill in the blanks on a few questions I had about the area. We talk Tarpon to Peacock Bass on this one. Then Will talks us through what our expectation of landing a Tarpon should really be.
In this episode, I share an old trick from a friend. The two of us used to climb together, and I can't tell you how many times this has saved my butt. Something simple but putting your name on gear and why can get it back to you.
Your host, Christian Bacasa, speaks with Adam Omernick, who has been in the industry for roughly 20 years, started and sold a rod company, is a casting instructor, and, most of all, an avid angler.

Then, we wrap up the show by educating us on how to continue your learning curve in fly fishing.
In this episode, we talk about anticipation. Most anglers aim for a target, and due to sacrificial drift, they miss it. Instead of using the target as the endpoint, let's discuss how we can aim above or beyond the target to achieve the appropriate presentation.
Your host, Christian Bacasa, speaks with Martin Gerdin, an artist who has been blowing glass for 18 years and has truly mastered the art of glass blowing.

Martin will tell all about his passion for Alpine Lakes and native fish, but don't miss the subtleties of the Roaring Fork, Frying Pan, etc. His ecosystem tips are great for any angler.
In this episode, let's talk about the number one mistake anglers make. Once you understand where the fish are, it can be easy to overcome, but reminding yourself daily is the key. I share a few tips that I use to overcome the obvious mistake.
