Tom's Eight Tips on Using Indicators
Published: 06/02/2014
Description: This week’s podcast is 8 tips on indicators—or probably more but I’m calling it 8 and sticking to it. We’ll talk about types, depth, how to rig, weights, and a couple special tricks on how to slow down the drift of your nymphs. In The Fly Box, we range from how to prepare for a saltwater trip to barbless hooks to sunken terrestrials to rod/reel balance. And lots more—even without a special guest I rambled for over an hour this week so I hope I can cover at least one of your daily commutes or a lawn mowing session.

Tom's Tips on Fishing Spring Creeks with Special Guest Orvis Vice-Chairman Dave Perkins
Published: 08/24/2011
Description: In this week's podcast, I'm joined by Dave Perkins, an old fishing and hunting buddy and also vice-chairman and one of the owners of Orvis. Dave , like me, is a spring creek fanatic and we talk about how spring creeks differ from freestone trout streams, what to expect on them, and where to find them. And of course we also discuss our favorite flies, leaders, and rods for fishing these very special trout streams. If you've never fished a spring creek, it's time to try one. And even if you never intend to fish one, the tips we give will be very helpful any time you find selective trout sipping in clear water. In the Fly Box this week, we talk about why trout live in some streams and not in others, how to make a downstream presentation, and some tips on light-line rods.
