Progress Through Mistakes and Summer Steelhead on the Deschutes River with Dave Stewart

In this episode we WadeOutThere with Dave Stewart from Oregon.  Dave started fly fishing at an early age.  His father, who was a guide, and one of the earliest fly fishermen on the Deschutes River, would often leave him alone to fish and explore on the river for two to three days in between guide trips. Dave’s love of the outdoors and fly fishing led him to start The Wet Fly Swing Podcast, which initially focussed on steelhead, but eventually branched out to all things fly fishing.

Podcast Ep 122 – The Importance of Exploration and the Upper Green River with Donicio Gomez

And what do those ten trips bring him?  The answer is not more fish, at least not in the short term.  Donicio will admit that nine out of ten of those trips are a bust.  Sure, there is value in the adventure of it, and the beauty of being in the mountains, but these trips typically end in long drives and tough hikes with little to no fish… nine out of ten times.  Donicio goes for that tenth time.

Veterans, Healing and Community with Will Cannon from The Iron Freedom Foundation. Podcast Ep 93 – Part 1 of 2

Will picked up a fly rod when he was eight years old and fished his home waters in Texas until he turned 17 and joined the Army as a scout.  After leaving the profession of arms, he found himself struggling with PTSD and battling cancer.  At his lowest point he returned to fly fishing and found relief. Determined to share the powerful healing he experienced through fly fishing with other struggling veterans, Will started the non-profit organization, The Iron Freedom Foundation (IFF).
