Fly-Fishing Podcast: Listener Questions and an Interview with Author Richard Louv


This week, in an addition to a long Fly Box section, I go a little off topic as I interview Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods and The Nature Principle, who introduced the term “Nature Deficit Disorder” to the world, and has perhaps done more than anyone else in modern times raise awareness of how important it is to get ourselves and our children outside more often.

He’s one of my role models and it was a great honor to interview him for the podcast. And, of course, we do talk about getting kids and grand-kids out fishing and give you some tips on how to do it.

This is a podcast you may want to recommend to friends who don’t fish, as it’s one of the most important things people can do for their children.
