This week's Sunday Short comes via a suggestion of one our friends Jim. We think you'll really enjoy this adaptation of the 1964 essay, Testament of a Fisherman, by John Voelker. Why is it that you fish?
This is by far our favorite "Sunday Short"! We cannot stop watching this over and over. Check out the trailer and the full length video too!
Who doesn't love summer fishing? Combine beautiful scenery, explosive takes and hopper flies and you have this week's Sunday Short.
Crazy, but another week has flown by. We decided to change the name of this feature, but the premise is the same. We've got another cool video for you to watch and be inspired by, so sit back and enjoy the Sunday Short!
At home base in New England today it is beyond cold and leaves us dreaming of chasing fish in warmer locations and days. Thankfully there are plenty of videos online to watch. Thought we'd share one we came across today. Enjoy the show!
We here at On the Fly are working hard to get the podcast trailer and future episodes ready to go soon. We figured it was time for an update on the progress and a new feature we will be rolling out soon.
In science fiction movies, we often see a spaceship equipped with a tractor beam being able to stop another spaceship dead in its tracks, sometimes pulling it in closer to be captured. Let's apply this analogy to the ideal traction for wading in a river. Traction like this would be more than ideal, it would be amazing. While we can't say if there is a wading boot, which can hold you on any and every surface with such force we may have found one that comes really close.
How many did you catch? How big was it? Often you hear these questions from fellow fisherman. To some all that matters is you catch a fish or many fish. But is that what really matters?
Where is that special place you like to hike or fish? What makes it so special to you? No doubt you want to make sure it stays that way for years to come. But how can you do that even on the small scale? We cover some practical steps we can all take to do just that.

Do you have a fishing buddy that you have a bunch of adventures in common? Sometimes even unbelievable adventures? Then you're just like Charles Cantella. He recounts some of his adventures in Fins N Grins, a collection of his stories.
One of the greatest memories I have of being on the water will always be a trip to the backwoods of Maine with my father. One thing hasn't changed; being on the water with my father, the man who taught me to fly fish and much more, is the time I cherish the most. Great memories are made each time, whether it is one of dancing around in the river, nearly going down, sharing good laughs, flies and insights or even getting skunked.

Many people have questions about catch and release fishing. Does it work? How can I do it best? Am I doing it right? We set out to answer these and more...
First, we want to thank all who participated in the contest. The winners are...
We here at On the Fly wanted to celebrate our first guest interview being recorded and thank you all for your support thus far! We have an awesome grand prize: one Tacky Fly Fishing Day Pack fly box and some runner up prizes (two On the Fly stickers, one for you and one to share).
My good friend and his family learned a hard lesson this past year. Sadly their dog got into some poison they forgot was on the farm. While it was a sad time, the story doesn't end there.
Unfortunately, it's time for some new wading boots and we look to you for your suggestions. Let us know.
We sit down to tell you a bit about our project here and the upcoming podcast.
