Our destination is the hallowed grounds of the Beaverkill River in the Catskills Mountains just a few hours north of New York City. Our guest is expert fly designer and guide, Joe Rist, owner of Trout Town Flies, Roscoe, NY. Considered the birthplace of American dry fly fishing, the Beaverkill is often called “the most celebrated trout stream in America”. And for good reason. It’s a freestone river, steeped in history with an incredible diversity of hatches, known for highly selective trout, creating some of the best technical dry fly fishing in the east.
Joe is a 3rd generation angler who has spent most of his life plying these waters and developing creative and effective patterns that are deadly when those standard fly patterns just aren’t fooling trout anymore. Stick around for the back half of the show as Joe gives us the low down on the Beaverkill from top to bottom and a master class in fly tying and technical fly-fishing skills.
