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.

Aug 11, 2022

Our destination is Northern California and the beautiful and lush McCloud River, home of the most widely distributed trout in the world, the McCloud Rainbow, and the birthplace of tight line nymphing.  With expert guide and fly angler, Greg Kennedy, Fish Kennedy Brothers.  Designated a wild and scenic river, the McCloud is a remote and magical place.  

Greg covers top hatches, flies and techniques, public access including the Nature Conservancy property, plus stories of Golden Dorado in Bolivia, airborne steelhead, and the famous Bollibokka club.  Stick around to the end for a great tip on a local restaurant where you can tie flies while you order a beer. 

Bonus:  Greg also gives us the lowdown on the Pitt and the Upper Sac.  

With host, Steve Haigh
