Podcast: A Tribute to John Merwin and Lots of Listener Questions


Written by: Phil Monahan


Welcome to the Orvis Fly-Fishing Guide Podcast. This week’s podcast ends on a somber note with the passing of our good friend and mentor, John Merwin, one of the greatest voices in fly fishing. I think you’ll enjoy a few memories of John, as well as readings from a couple of his pieces. But up front we have a very full fly box—lots of e-mails and phone calls on casting problems, fly tying problems and solutions, picking tackle, and fishing nymphs. Apologies for some sound quality issues on this show, as we had technical difficulties and did not notice them until it was too late.
