Streamer Fishing in East Tennessee with Jason McReynolds (Ep. 192)

Its an addiction.  It just keeps growing.  You wanna keep going further and further.

In this episode we WadeOutThere with Jason McReynolds from Jonesborough, Tennessee.  Jason began fly fishing in East Tennessee during the late nineties.  When his wife, who also enjoyed fly fishing, was seriously injured in a car accident, the couple began fishing streamers almost exclusively, because the larger flies and larger weighted rods was therapeutic for his wife Christy’s recovery. 

They fell in love with streamer fishing, and since they were going fishing so much already, they opened their own guide service, Flying Soho. 

We discuss the South Holston River, adapting fly lines to water types while streamer fishing, and handling and releasing trophy size fish safely.

My conversation with Jason was full of surprises. It is an ironic path that led Jason and is wife took to find streamer fishing on a river that was otherwise known for dry fly fishing. It goes to show that fly fishing can be whatever we want (or need) it to be. I am looking forward to talking with Jason’s wife Christy on a future episode of the podcast.

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 Jason.

Please enjoy
– Jason
