This is not your ordinary fishing trip …

Guest Profile

Another first for the show – interviewing the host of another fishing podcast. Dave Stewart joins us from the Wet Fly Swing fly fishing podcast. Before he picked up the mic, Dave was a life long fly fisherman. His father was a fly fishing guide, so you might say it was ingrained in his DNA. Dave was guiding himself by the age of 12. Now Dave is a guide of a different sort, teaching from behind the mic about fly fishing through his interviews with many greats in the fly fishing world. On this episode, we turn the tables on Dave and ask him some of the same questions he uses on his guests. Plus, Dave shares his most epic trip ever – a Skeena River fly fishing adventure in some untapped and untamed waters.

Fishing experience

With a dad who was a fly fishing guide, it’s no wonder Dave took to the sport from such an early age. Guiding himself by the age of 12, Dave spent many days guiding other folks on the river. While Dave has a ton of experience fishing trout and steelhead fly fishing, he still has a long bucket list when it comes to the saltwater species. He is particularly looking forward to his first tussle with the silver king – tarpon.
