This week, I have a long and fascinating interview with Mike Schmidt, designer of such giant trout streamers as the Junk Yard Dog. He gives up his secrets on when to fish a giant streamer (and when not to), what techniques he uses, and also some tips on tying these flies and why he designs them the way he does. I don’t think I have learned so much in a podcast in a long time, and I hope you find it as inspiring and interesting as I did. I am ready to charge out there with some giant streamers right away.
In the Fly Box, we range from catching smallmouth bass in clear lakes to catching stocked trout and channel catfish in Houston, and then we delve into how to get more involved in the fly-fishing industry, whether or not wings are necessary on a dry fly, and much more.
