Editor’s Note: Tom’s off filming episodes of Season 2 of “The Orvis Guide to Fly Fishing” TV show, so here’s a great podcast from the archives.

In this week’s podcast, I have the pleasure of chatting with John Gierach, probably the most popular fly-fishing writer in the world (based on the fact that all 18 of his books are still in print!) It’s likely that most fly fishers have read John’s work, but it’s a pleasure to hear his voice and some of his thoughts on today’s fly-fishing world.

In The Fly Box, we have some thought-provoking questions this week: whether it makes sense to use a loop knot on a dry fly, whether a three-turn blood knot is enough, how to keep a bass leader from twisting, another cool trick with a rubber band, how to keep your emergers floating properly in the surface film, how to catch freshwater drum, and what kinds of fly lines you need for fishing a Canadian lake in midsummer.
