Orvis Fly-Fishing Guide Podcast: Junk in the Trunk–Eggs, Worms and Scuds

[Editor’s Note: Holy Cow. Wait until you hear Tom’s announcement about the new milestone in podcast downloads. Please join all of us at Orvis in congratulating Tom for this remarkable achievement.]

This week in the Fly Box we first talk about what to expect when fishing for king salmon in Alaska, the half hitch vs. the whip finish in fly tying, and etiquette on salmon rivers. Then, in the main event, we explore the fascinating world of what some people call “junk” flies—worms, eggs, and scuds.

These flies are fished like nymphs and are just as much a “match the hatch” situation as elegant mayfly nymphs (at least in my opinion).
