Tom is expert — he’s broad and deep in his field; educational — he’s reduced fly fishing down to key principles and points that he preaches consistently across a variety of platforms, from podcasts to books to videos, imparting these principles while continually pointing out there are no...Read full review »

On the very first episode I sampled the host Tom repeatedly scolded his guest for using the word “fisherman” as to not offend anyone. Please grow up and realize that the world is not that fragile. Nobody with any real interest in the sport is going to dissuaded by a harmless word. As a...Read full review »

I’ve enjoyed so much different varieties of information on this podcast. Though recently on the interview section with Todd Tanner. Tom went on to continuously correct Todd about using the word “ fisherman” and requested he use the word “Fisher” in order to be more inclusive. Tom interrupted him...Read full review »

Stale is the word that keeps coming to mind when I scroll through the episodes. In the age of Orvis’ 50/50 On The Water, having one female interview in an entire year isn’t a great statistic. And while I adore Tim Flagler and am a better tier for watching him, I question whether there were there...Read full review »

Well just like everything else they do , they did a great job on this too . Yes some of the questions in the fly box are ridiculous and flat out dumb but Tom works through them. The guests are pretty interesting and informative. Keep it going Orvis this is good stuff .

This is one of my favorite podcasts to listen to why either fly tying or driving. Tom does an excellent job on educating us on the various topics. Very enjoyable to listen to. Glad this podcast is around.

Without a doubt best podcast on the planet
dma51 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/08/21
My favorite podcast, hands down. Tom is a great ambassador for fly fishing. Smart, ethical, contemplative, conservationist. Can’t wait for the next episode.

Pretty exceptional. Great for all skill sets.

John was great in this podcast. We all have to make changes in the way we fish. Thanks for the insight

Thank you Tom and Orvis for bringing the world the excitement of Flyfishing and all things related. Cheers from Canada 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦

While the episode was entertaining for the first 20min, I think a lot of people would have preferred a informative podcast with a real expert on fishing the brood x hatch. You guys missed the mark here. Disappointing
Trout1219 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/07/21
WOW! You got me on that one! I thought it was for real until the rich English snob with the Range Rover! I listened with delight for the rest of the show. Loved it. You say cicada, I say cicada, and down south they say “cay daddy”! Classic, good, clean humor. Thank you!

Excellent show, super enjoyable and great for expanding your knowledge.

Tom is my hero! Such a great resource. I have learned so much! Thank you Tom and Orvis!
lakerjon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/21
Tom does a great job at having a wide spread of topics to pick from and incorporates some of the best in the business to enhance discussion and deepen the knowledge pool. Thank you Tom

Tom is the best! Great fly fishing podcast
pollochos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/20
I use some piece of advice from Tom nearly every time I’m on the water.
BrookAndBear via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/20
The fly box is my jam!!
FishingWithBranden via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/24/20
One of the absolute best podcasts out there. I always look forward to listening to the Orvis Fly Fishing podcast with Tom R. In these crazy times, this podcast is not only a welcome escape and safe harbor, but also a place for inspiration and learning. Thank you Tom & Orvis!
BoronII via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/20
Huge thanks to Tom and Orvis! Having grown up in the shadow of a particular Orvis competitor in my native Maine, I had always been intrigued by this sport but for whatever reason found myself a bit intimidated. Now in on my 40’s I’ve discovered the sport and with the help of a couple friends...Read full review »

I come and go from fishing as other aspects of life demand time. This podcast consistently has great information that helps you as a beginner, keeps the experienced angler up to date and serves as a reference portal for someone like me who needs a brush up before heading out. The Orvis family...Read full review »

IT DOESNT GET ANY BETTER!! A priceless amount of knowledge and advice. Highly recommend it. Thanks Tom!

Long time listeners here, Jesse from Grand Rapids. Just want to say the new season of new fly fisher looks great. The podcast has remained interesting and insightful. I recently bought my first Orvis rod. Love everything you guys do. Thanks for all the great content.
JesseLeeGR via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/20
Just discovered this recently. Love listening to this while walking. Been fly fishing for about 35 years and already have learned so much more from Tom’s and Orvis’s podcast.
Hoagietroller via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/12/20
This is by far the best and most informative and entertaining podcast I’ve ever heard when I first listened to it I thought that Tom was just another old person but now I see that he is my favorite podcast “host” and I know that if I heard him I would know it was him in an instant because I have...Read full review »

The gold standard of fly fishing podcasts. Thanks Orvis and thanks Tom.
rrumanti via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/05/20
Huge fan of Tom! Got to meet him at IFTD 2019 and he’s a really nice guy. When I first got into the sport his videos on YouTube and the Orvis website were instrumental in getting me ramped up with the foundational knowledge I needed in order to get those first few fish to the net - the ones that...Read full review »
chadalderson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/28/20
Hands down the best fly fishing podcast, period. The ‘fly box’ Q/A section every episode is really helpful; and the variety of guests encompass the breadth of the sport. Plus, there’s no better ambassador for the sport than lifelong fly angler and fly tier than Tom Rosenbauer.
1001357 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/08/20
This is a really great podcast for anyone, whether beginner or more advanced fly fisher, who wants to learn more about fly fishing and discuss some current topics. By some considerable margin, I think it’s the best and most informative podcast out there (and I think I’ve listened to most!)....Read full review »

Can’t beat free knowledge especially since it’s prime knowledge. I got to say, I’m not an Orvis gear guy but the podcast makes me reconsider
dillpickllle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/30/20
Really look forward to Podcast and is my favorite out of the 15 or so I follow. Buy Orvis products because of it. thanks for being such an ambassador to the sport and outdoors. I look forward to new show releases

Hello Love the Show and always looking forward to the next one . Listening in my car on the way to work/ or on my way home. Listening to you from Kentucky. Thanks
Phillipsk65 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/20
Tom provides one of the best informative podcasts on fly fishing that’s out there. Like listening to an old friend always leaving you with great anticipation until the next time you meet. No matter if you are a novice or self proclaimed expert Tom or his guest always provide great tips to add...Read full review »

This is the only flyfishing podcast that is this informative. The fly box questions are more helpful sometimes than you may think. Tom is obviously knowledgable and helps break down every situation for us to understand! LOVE IT ALL. Would love some more podcasts on fishing around the...Read full review »

I have learned most of what I know about fly dishing through this podcast. Thank you Tom and Orvis
Willy Kon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/07/20
Lots of good info, well presented without the mindless chatter found in most such podcasts.
jmaz567 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/15/19
Love this podcast. Been listening since I started fly fishing two years ago and it really helped my learning curve. Plus, it helps my mind go to the river while I’m doing mindless tasks at work. I really love the recent change of the flybox coming after the main content.
Jdhzjfkahgdkdhs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/11/19
Thanks tom and orvis, you have really helped my shorten my learning curve! I really like having the fly box come after the interview/main content. 👍🏽
