Our destination is fly fishing the wild and scenic Kern River with Guy Jeans, owner of Kern River Fly Shop, Kernville, California.   Emerging from the shadow of Mt Whitney in Sequoia National Forrest, the Kern flows 165 miles through some of the most beautiful country in California and is home to 3 native species including the world-famous Golden Trout.

Guy grew up as a surfer kid in Ventura, playing music, washing windows, and guiding part-time on the Kern while sleeping in his truck.  After selling his business, he started his fly shop and now guides, writes fly fishing articles, teaches, designs flies, plays in a “ska” band, and even hosts the Guy Jeans podcast.   We break down the North, South, and tailwater sections of the Kern, along with tales of carp fishing, top flies and seasons, and wilderness wanderings. 

With host, Steve Haigh
