Late Fall and Early Winter Fly-Fishing Secrets: Big Streamers and Big Trout


Written by: Phil Monahan



This week I interview our rod and reel designer, Shawn Combs, whose nickname around the office is Didymo (you have to listen to the podcast to find out why). Shawn is a streamer fanatic, and the best at streamer fishing for trout of anyone on our staff, so I asked him to tell all his secrets of fishing for late fall and winter trout with streamers. It’s an educational podcast for sure, but it’s also a fun one. Click the play button above to listen.
