Episode #5 now live on the web and all I will say is I don’t remember much after the first few minutes of the podcast so don’t hold me to anything I allegedly promise to do here. Enjoy and sorry for the lack of blogging laterly, we have been BUSY!!
Yep, we are still at it, hopefully getting a bit better but likely not. This episode we have the pleasure of chatting with Brian O’keefe, renowned fly angling photographer, sales rep and just all around great guy. If the fly fishing industry had more Brian O’keefe’s, there would be nothing to worry about! Click the picture above to be whisked away…!
So it may have been evident for some time to some people that this was going to happen and to the rest it might be a bit of a shock. Skate The Fly, the blog you have come to love and the Podcasts you have likely tried to forget is now also the most intuitive online fly shop around.
Pardon potential bugs in the system, Dylan is working 25 hours a day to fix them as well as add new content. The blog is now available through the home page and we will be offering a promo code through Emerald Water Anglers for those interested, shoot us an email or give us a call.
The next episode of STF T.V. will air soon with special guest Tommy Girvin, lead guitarist of 20+ years for the Eddie Money Band and feverish fly angler.
Happy Holidays to everyone and check out Skate The Fly!
In this episode, Dylan Rose and I welcome our good and long time friend Coach Duff or Terry as we love to call him to the show to discuss the state of Hawaiian bonefish, guiding and anything else that might or might not pertain to it. Enjoy by clicking the picture above.
As before, please keep in mind this is for entertainment and contains some sarcasm as necessary to deal with the pressures for our lifestyles.
“I just launched my Fishing Dog Photo Contest, which should be a lot of fun. Who knows what images I might see. Grand prize is a Loop OPTI spey rod and matching Speedrunner reel. Worth what? About $1,200 retail. I threw this rod the other day and it launches. Other prizes are coming from Hatch, Yellowdog, Bug Slinger, Smith, fishpond, RO drift boats, and Deneki. If you’d like to be included in this contest with prize donation just let me know.”
Having grown up with a black lab as my dad’s co-pilot in the boat, I have plenty of experience with dogs, that like water, being in or near it when a fish is on or being landed, holy crap! We used to have to chain our labs head to the bottom of the boat, literally 2 inches from the bottom. We only found this out after simply putting his leash around the seat, he nearly hung himself going after a winter steelhead we had to chase down a run on an Oregon coastal stream.
My other favorite is when the dog things larger fish are out to get them and the growling and play fighting begins, try stopping a nearly 100 pound male black lab, from attacking your fish as you beach it, keeping the line taught on a spey rod and you can’t even get to your fish.
At any rate, some of my fondest memories of fishing growing up involved in one way or another a dog. Dog Bless ’em!

Holy cow, this has been in the works for along time and I am mixed with emotions from scared to excited and frightened to elated, sort of the same I know but that is it, they are all running through me.
This is intended to be informal dialogue amongst good friends whom are making their living in this industry we love so much. Our special guest in this episode is Greg Thomas, author, dad and photographer who also happens to be a great guy and friend.
Along the way, beer, other people and sensitive issues come up so I will reiterate what Dylan, my co-host said, DO NOT WATCH if you are taking or plan to take fly fishing too seriously, don’t enjoy drunk fly fishing guides and some slight profanity or spoofs on those who DO take fishing too seriously.
