Episode 78:New Rods, Ugly Flies, and Beautiful Places

In this episode, Joshua and Caleb discuss a recent fly-fishing trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to try out two new rods and rigs. Exploring new modes of fly fishing often seems intimidating, but after being gifted a fiberglass rod and a euro rod, we knew we had to give them a shot, and we were so impressed. In this episode, we discuss the following:
-Trying out new fly fishing techniques
-Fly fishing with glass
-Overcoming the euro learning curve
-Can you dry/dropper fish with a euro rod?
-Getting frustrated with fly tying
-Ugly flies catch fish
-Dad tips
-and more stories from an epic day on the water.
