The Effects of the Moon and Barometric Pressure on Fishing

In this week’s podcast I interview Captain Jim Barr from Rhode Island and we talk about the effects of barometric pressure changes and moon phases on fly fishing, both in Jim’s arena of striped bass fishing and also on various freshwater species. If you’re looking for easy answers you’ll be disappointed, but I think you’ll enjoy hearing us talk about the empirical observations we’ve made over the years. In the Fly Box section this week we discuss methods of weighting flies with non-toxic materials, why you catch bigger fish on worms than you do on flies, and an explanation of the term “turning over” a fly and what you can do to make sure your fly turns over.
