I’ve been meaning to post up something on April Vokey’s podcast series for a while. First off she’s a friend, a fly fisher I’ve enjoyed water time with, a fellow crazy.
Ape has fought the stereotype of being a “gorgeous face with a fly rod” over a serious professional since she came to prominence as a guide & tyer. Over the past 2 years she has packed some awesome interviews into her podcast series which is deserved of a serious reputation.
I was interest in this month’s interview with Dr Andy Danylchuk on “keep ‘Em Wet” studies on releaseing fish. But then I started running down the list of other interviews and its solid, including several heros.
If you were a fishy kid in the 80s Rod Harrison and his protege Dean Butler were the guys you wanted to be. Getting to travel to kool locations, catch huge fish all for a few stories and photos, these two were at the forefront of fishing media at the time.
Peter Morse brought fishing and high class images and video to tv a little later, including some fly fishing, and he remains one of the great fly fishing photographers. All these are on the list and more.
