No comments yet / Posted on / by


This Saturday Marshal Cutchin sits down with one of the true greats in fly fishing, Chico Fernandez.

Chico talks about how he got started fly fishing as a boy in Cuba and how he, and the sport, have evolved. He shares insights into the nature of fly angling, jazz, Cuban cooking, fly design and poling skiffs vs canoes. Best of all there is an audio file as well as the text, so you can hear Chico speak in his own voice.

This was really special for me. There are few people I respect more than Chico Fernandez. In addition to being one of the epic pioneers in saltwater fly fishing, he’s the nicest guy you will ever meet. Take the time to listen to this interview. You’ll be glad you did.

In addition this week I’d like to share this great video about the Trout Unlimited, Headwaters Program. This is a great, and important program and this video tells the story well.

Come fish with us in the Bahamas!
