Bruce Richards Podcast

Writer and photojournalist Zach Matthews recently added an extensive interview with fly line expert and MidCurrent editorial board member Bruce Richards to his Itinerant Angler Web site. In the 28-minute interview, Bruce gives lots of detail on fly line manufacturing technologies and methods. He also discusses fly line taper design and weight-ratings philosophies. “Any fast rod can be turned into a slow rod by going up two or three line sizes,” Bruce says at one point in the interview, revealing much about the “wiggle room” in rod manufacturers’ specifications.
