Picture this. You’re off on a fishing adventure to a new location and just arrived at the fly shop, hoping to pick up some local knowledge. It’s 7:30 in the morning. The guides are meeting their clients. Handshakes and smiles are exchanged. The air is filled with anticipation for a day on the water. You love the vibe and can’t wait to get out there. Everyone is in a good mood in a fly shop, you say to yourself. “How can I help you?”, the gentleman behind the counter asks with a smile as he dials you in to the area.

Every traveling angler is looking for an edge – that extra tip that can make the difference between a good day and a great day. At the Destination Angler Podcast, we go right to the source, the local guides and experts, to build your knowledge of top fishing locations across North America. Our experts recreate that “fly shop” experience, giving you the low down on top fisheries and sharing great stories from their life on the water.
