Tom Rosenbauer on Drift Boat Etiquette

July 25, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

Not a lecture on how to row a drift boat without annoying others, but rather an introduction to how to best take advantage of a day of guided drift boat fishing, Rosenbauer’s latest podcast includes such sage advice as: “Don’t turn your guide into a marriage counselor.”
Excerpt: “A good guide is going to watch your casts for the first dozen or so casts and see where you’re comfortable. The guide will then position the boat so that your comfortable casting distance is going to reach the perfect spot. If you watch a good guide carefully they will weave in and out of the current, and back and forth, to make sure that you’re able to put your fly easily in the best spot.”
