Painful at times; Could be better
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 no other tiers to have on in a 6 month span of time. The Fly Box Q&A is a great idea but I struggle having to waste 5-10 minutes of my valuable time up front listening to some of the dumb questions and rambly responses before I can get to the content I came for. Placement may be key here — put it behind the topic, or midpoint in an intermission. I’ve abandoned listening on numerous occasions because the topic had not gotten under way in a timely fashion and I lost interest. Answering idiotic questions such as ‘what method should I fish X river with?’ isn’t necessary and comes off as passive-aggressive snark. The critical call-outs are unnecessary. Delete the question and find others to respond to. Lastly, Orvis offers Fly Fishing 101 classes as well as a robust video tutorial section online. Many folks don’t know these resources exist. They should really be Tom’s go-to answers when responding to questions involving new or novice anglers.

Just listened to a podcast on fly fishing small streams, while I was stuck in the LA traffic on my way home from work... What traffic? It was awesome. Listened to a couple more podcasts while driving. I can't believe this is FREE. Get this, you will enjoy it.Read full review »
