  • Juan Ramirez talks about everything from how he got his start in the industry, to guiding, to his signature fly pattern, the Hopper Juan, with Paul Beel on Franken Fly.
  • Whether fishing a one-handed rod or two, spey techniques are useful to add to your arsenal. Kirk Deeter explains casting tips of using water resistance to load the rod on Fly Talk.
  • An 18-foot carcass of an oarfish was recently found off the coast of Southern California. Often living more than 3,000 feet below the surface, oarfish are rarely studied and this find is aptly being called “the discovery of a lifetime.”
