The Destination Angler Podcast


The Destination Angler podcast is THE podcast for anglers who travel. With Steve Haigh 

We go to the source, the local guides & experts, to build your knowledge of top fishing locations around North America.

May 19, 2022

Our destination is the backcountry of Yellowstone National Park with outfitter and expert fly angler, Shane McClaflin, Sunrise Pack Station.  Shane has been guiding anglers into the backcountry for 30 years and shares stories of John Colter and Blackfeet Indians, mules and grizzly bears, and wolves eating fly rod cases, plus top backcountry fishing spots, must-have fly patterns, and an update on the Thorofare, the most remote region in the lower 48.   So, saddle up the packhorses and the mules as we head into the backcountry for experiences of a lifetime.   

With Host, Steve Haigh
