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.

Dec 29, 2021

Our destination is Jackson, Wyoming, and the famed Snake River.  And our guests are two industry icons and world-renown fly tiers, Scott Sanchez and Howard Cole, JD High Country Outfitters.  If you could pick a perfect spot to open a fly shop, Jackson Hole just might just be at top of the list. The number and variety of fly fishing opportunities in this area are astounding, not to mention the scenery.  Scott and Howard have written hundreds of articles, invented dozens of innovative fly patterns, and have won numerous industry awards.  Here they cover all the key rivers and access points, the history of Jackson Hole, cutthroat migration patterns, the “one fly” competition, and why the Snake is a great place to catch a native Cutthroat on a dry. Stick around for the back half of the show as these master fly tiers describe their process for inventing new patterns.  Bonus:  Flat Creek and the National Elk Refuge will challenge the best of anglers.  

With Host, Steve Haigh
