The Orvis Fly Fishing Guide Podcast Interviews Lori-Ann Murphy and April Vokey in Belize

This week we’re bringing you a special video podcast from Belize, where I spent some time chatting with two of the most dynamic women in fly fishing, Lori-Ann Murphy, fishing manager of El Pescador Lodge and founder of Reel Women Fly Fishing (and co-star of this year’s “Pirates of the Flats” TV show), and April Vokey, noted steelhead guide, teacher, and TV personality. We get sidetracked and the discussion goes from permit to steelhead. This is the first of a series of podcasts with noted female anglers in celebration of the American Museum of Fly Fishing’s new exhibition “A Graceful Rise, Women in Fly Fishing–Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow”, which opens on June 11 and 12 (www.amff.com)

A Hatch that Doesn’t Match

Like most places in the Rockies, Utah has more water than we know what to do with right now. If it gets warm fast, the largest urban areas in the state will face mudslides and serious flooding. As a result, water managers are dumping as much water as they can from all of the reservoirs, . . .
