Podcast: All About Snook, With Dan Andrews



This week’s podcast is all about snook. I have never done a full podcast just on snook fishing, but it is the most popular game fish in Florida, so I figured it was high time. I enlisted Captain Dan Andrews as a guest. Aside from being a lifelong snook chaser and guide, Dan is executive director of Captains for Clean Water, a great organization that Orvis strongly supports.

In the Fly Box, we have questions on occasional risers; whether you can handle a 22-inch trout on a 10-foot, 3-weight Recon; smelly head cements; targeting walleyes on the fly; pulling trout out of deep, slow pools; casting weighted streamers on a 5-weight; and some tips for steelhead anglers on the Great Lakes. There is also a story on a most unusual animal that took an angler’s mouse fly—but I won’t spoil the surprise here.

  1. Went out fishing in Puerto Rico for some snook action and my guide had the Helios 2 8wt. and I must say it is by far one of the best rods I’ve casted in a while. I bought some flies from the orvis shop in Bassproshop. The guy recommended 3 different flies including a minnow which worked really great! http://www.gofishinginpuertorico.com
