Podcast: Rosenbauer’s “Quick Fly-Fishing History Lesson”

Tom offers a couple of casting tips and advice on fishing crowded trout streams and detecting nymph strikes before delving into fly-fishing history (“in a nutshell”).

“These early fly fishers used really long, limber rods and just a leader.  There wasn’t really any line on there.  They didn’t do much casting, other than sometimes just flicking it out there a little bit.  But for the most part they ‘dapped.’  They’d put that long rod over the fish and dap that fraud insect on the water and fish would grab it.”
