First Podcast a Success
I am new to the Reno area and I look forward to this Podcast to learn about fly fishing in the area. The first episode was exactly what I was looking for and it would seem to be a great match for experienced folks as well. I hope they keep putting these out.
Glad to see fly fishing podcast done right, Looking forward to more.
It's really great to have a local podcast that keeps us informed on local fisheries. I'm really impressed with the quality and the content so far. Case in point episode 3 talks about carp, so I'm sold!
