Dry Fly Techniques, the Snake River, and Hosted Trips with Josh GallivanPodcast Draft (Ep. 197)

You have to get out of the boat and  explore side channels. You have to hike a little further, but they’re there.  There’s very large cutthroat here.

In this episode we WadeOutThere with Josh Gallivan, from Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  Josh was born and raised in Jackson Hole, and started working in a fly shop while in high school.  He knew early on that he wanted to be a fly fishing guide, and got plenty of practice on the oars fishing with his uncle, who helped him buy his first drift boat. 

Josh is a full time guide at Grand Teton Fly Fishing, on his home waters, the Snake River, and hosts several fly fishing trips annually to various exotic destinations. 

We discuss the diversity of the Snake River, dry dropper and dry fly presentation techniques, and the benefits of finding a hosted trip for your next fly fishing adventure.

Josh gave me so many unique techniques for fishing in this conversation. Many were not what I typically hear, but Josh knows his why’s. I think that is important anytime you are discussing tactics. It’s one thing to do something because someone told you, it’s another to understand why it works. I hope our talk inspires you to re-think some of your own why’s in the way you approach not just dry flies, but every aspect of the sport.

You can listen to the show on the podcast player below or anywhere that you enjoy podcasts. I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I enjoyed talking with Josh.
