December 4, 2021

On Episode 121 we chat to Brandon King, who along with his wife Clair Carter King, have established Arabian Fly and Sportfishing which is based in Oman. Brandon's outfit is the only place in the world that you can get consistent shots at Trachinotus Africanus which is for many the most difficult Permit to acquire when chasing all four species of Permit. On this show we get to know a little about the destination of Oman and what lead Brandon and Clair into starting what is arguably one of the most unique saltwater Fly-fishing destinations in the world.

Episode 117 - Return of The Voltz

November 5, 2021

On episode 117- We experience the full gamut of emotions as we see the return of Voltron the powerful back to the hot seat.  We quickly recap on the last 2 recent shows then get into learning about the fascination annual migration north that Voltz and his companion Kyle undertake. Unlike the great Wildebeest migrations of the Serengeti , there is no risk of predators on this sojourn, with this pair, they are the hunters and they definitely slayed. We break down this trip by entering the mind of the seasoned annual traveller and learn what it takes to alpha someone into driving the whole way while you sleep. The boys had some great fishing, its a good story and it was good to have Voltz back, we hope you enjoy the show.

On Episode 116 we are stoked to have back on the show Al Simson. Al is a resident of Far North Queensland, and is a guide, commercial fly tyer and owner of Kettafly Apparel, which is some of the best performance wear you will have see. On this show we get into what the Great Barrier Reef flats has to offer. We talk about the variety of flats on offer and what lives on them. We also talk about the bus size Geets that you will see Al often cuddling, and we learn of an amazing Red Bass on open sand flats fishery that I'll bet many didn't know existed!! From there we get into the flies that he ties, where we get a bit techno with that subject. 

From there we talk about these shirts Al is making out of Fish Whistle studios and the thought Al has put into sourcing the short and the artwork associated with it. If your interested in what Al has in the way of apparel checkout kettafly.com

Episode 115 - While you were sleeping

Episode 115 - While you were sleeping

October 23, 2021

On Episode 115, we try something very different and unusual.  On a mission to supply a customer with a packet of hooks, Chris drives over an hour to fish with a person he has never met in a river he has never fished  for a species he has barely targeted, it was during this unusual situation that he decided to record the experience for you guys, the valued listener.  On previous podcasts, you hear us talk about the grind and the trials of fly fishing in most situations, now couple that with recording, a new river system, meeting someone new and a plan to fish until the sun comes up... what could go wrong. 

We hope you enjoy this experimental show. Please leave us a comment if you liked it or didn't like it. If there is intertest, it might be a platform we can build on and polish out performance for you.

Episode 114 - Phlyfishing Filosophy, breaking down cliche‘s

Episode 114 - Phlyfishing Filosophy, breaking down cliche‘s

October 15, 2021

On Episode 115, we go way deep into the psyche of successful angling, somewhat by accident seeing the original concept of the show was meant to be and still sort of is breaking down common fishing cliché's. If you are in a slump, or just trying to figure out what makes a successful angler both on and off the water, then this podcast might be a good show to tie a few flies too, or stare broodingly into the distance whilst aggressively destroying a few VB longnecks and just pondering if these idiots make sense. Who knows, you may not agree with us, but it may tweak a eureka moment that might expand your approach to fishing for greater success.

Episode 113 - Angus Reynolds

October 8, 2021

On Episode 113, we are stoked to finally get Angus Reynolds on the show. You guys might know Angus as the NSW gun trout guide who works for AFF, or you might know him from his Instagram page @bong_bong_fly which is a rich tapestry of solid trout captures, stunning landscapes and thought provoking art that celebrates the humble toad fish. Angus has a contagious personality and a great attitude to life and fishing around his local haunts and many travels. On this show we learn about Angus's love of short term adventure and the sum of experiences that has led him to a full time guide lifestyle. We also get to hear of a few close call snake encounters that are not that surprising given how off track Angus gets. And have you ever wondered if any one if straining Vulcans? 

This is a really cool up beat show, we hope you like it.

On Episode 112, we chat to Mark Burns who is from across the puddle in Pennsylvania USA.  Mark is a friend to the show, and the proprietor of Uban Fly Co which is a Guiding and fly tying outfitter for a variety of northern US freshwater predators such as Musky, Pike, Smallmouth, Stripers, Hybrids (Wipers) and Bowfin. Mark who is also one of the Co Hosts of the SVS podcast, is someone we would consider to be a Bucktail aficionado. We get into the parallels between Musky fishing and Murray Cod fishing, in addition to explaining the Brad Bohen designed Buford fly and how its designed to work and what you need to know when selecting one for your fishing. Also on this show we definitely get into it over Bucktail, a passionate topic for all involved that almost makes this show a Bucktail special. Mark is a legend dude, and we are grateful for his time, we hope you enjoy the show.
