Our destination is beautiful Shenandoah National Park for mountain Brook trout with 60-year fly fishing veteran, Harry Murray, Murray’s Fly Shop, Edinburg VA. Virginia has over 3,500 miles of trout streams, and the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding mountains are loaded with brook trout. With 79,000 acres of protected wilderness area, prolific hatches, and dozens and dozens of steams to choose from, the Park is where to go for scenery, solitude and wild brookies.
Harry opened his fly shop in 1962, the same year he received his pharmacy degree. He ran both the fly shop and the pharmacy out of the same building for many years. Harry’s written 17 books on fly fishing and developed over 30 fly patterns that are staples for anglers chasing trout and smallmouth everywhere. His articles have appeared in many national fly-fishing magazines, and he does a podcast of his own on fishing conditions in his neck of the woods.
Harry shares his “feeding stations” approach for sizing up trout streams, great stories of Art Flick, Dave Whitlock, and Lee Perkins, tips on how to scout out your own fly-fishing adventure in the Park, and important hatches and flies you need to be aware of. So, let’s listen in as Harry shares his wisdom about trout fishing in this beautiful part of the world!
