    Don't say that as if it's some sort of consolation role. Tweed and brandy are often under appreciated. You complete us.

    I got a chance to listen last night. It has a great feel to it, with some (almost) witty reparte. A bit like the "Fish Schtick" was before it disappeared, but without the gear rod portion. Keep up the work.

    Yes, the interview with Dave will be a strong sophomor(ic) effort.

    Listening to episode 2 now.

    Possible future topic, raft vs. drift boat. I think a lot of people listening to this are not guides, reps, or rod makers so I think it'd be good to talk about the goods and bads of both. I've had clients never step foot in a raft that absolutely LOVED it at the end of the day. Just something to think about.

    With Derek and Kirk being StreamTech dudes, and me being a hard boat fan... Could be battle royale at the open fly.

    Small odd request but any chance you could use a different codec or compress the mp3 more? It was like 200mb...other podcasts I listen to in the 1hr range are about 15-25mb, which would put the length of yours at about 40-50mb or so

    I'll see what I can do. I think my recording software defaults to a higher bitrate. Not sure why I didn't think to lower it a bit.

    I'll just lower the quality on all of them. Helps with my hosting bandwidth, and is more in line with the overall business philosophy at The Open Fly.

    Just listened to all 3.

    Maybe do some unbaised gear reviews. This show feels like an Allen Fly fishing commercial. Overall, good show!

    Outside of the actual Allen commercial, there is not much pitching for Allen going on (though Allen did fund the getting off the ground).

    We're avoiding the topics of gear reviews and recommendations because I have a full time job to keep. This is about stories and conservation.
