This episode is for the novice anglers picking up fly rods for the first time. Fly fishing has become an outlet for those seeking solace along a quiet stretch of water during the pandemic.

Rob breaks down everything he thinks you should know about a fly rod, how to use it, and the terminology involved. Once you get the basics down of rod anatomy is time to learn how to use the rod to its fullest potential, the flies you will cast, and how to work those flies. Use half the strength you think you need to cast a rod. Less is more. Have fun, don't get discouraged, de-barb your hooks, and never shake your rod when the fly is tangled on the tip.
