These are rivers rich with tradition and also rich with a diverse insect population--although they don't have the quantity of insects seen in the Catskill tailwaters like the Delaware, they have a more diverse population so you never know what you'll see. Plus, for the wading angler, these rivers don't have drift boats thus they can be more pleasant for fly fishers on foot.

Tom is on the road this week so we are posting a backcast episode from January of on emergers. This is one of Tom's "Black Diamond" episodes where he shares some more advanced fly-fishing techniques. Some stories are bizarre, some funny, and some touching. There is just a bit of bathroom humor around body functions, so just be warned in case you listen to these with kids. Nothing I would not share with my kids but just in case… In the Fly Box this week, we have some interesting questions and a couple great tips from listeners.
A series of great tips on what to focus on when teaching a friend to fly fish. If jig hooks ride point up, why do fly tiers put the wing case on the side that points down when it is in the water?

Euro nymphing?
Drop shot techniques? Fly fishing for pike? Saltwater fly fishing? Those were all done hundreds of years ago. Paul also goes into some detail on women in fly fishing, and how women have been involved in the sport since the very beginning.

In the Fly Box this week we have some great questions: What is the difference between wild, native, and holdover trout? Will upgrading my rod make me a better angler?
