This episode
I managed to get my hands on a great new recorder - a Samson Zoom H2 - and immediately went fishing and recorded the first podcast in months! The podcast was mostly about that: recording again, but also covers the recently held GFF Summit here in Denmark and a few other subjects. I just wanted to get some sound made and get back on the podcast-track, so I beg for forgiveness for my lack of focus.

I will soon create some podcasts more concentrated on one subject as I have done before, and I'm still very open to suggestions for things to cover. I have promised something on leaders, photography and a few other things long ago, and Matthias Kaul from Southern California asked for some info on the flies we fish. I may very well cover one of these subjects the next time I go out, which I hope will be real soon now.

And Vanuz/Branislav is from Slovakia! Sorry about that. There is no such thing as Czechoslovakia any more. I must be getting old...

A windy fish - Wind had me screaming at times in the effort to stretch the back cast. But the fly got out. And fish got in.

Czechoslovakia, it is long long time ago. Vanuz, Slovakia is probabbly less known, there is no slovak nymph but Czech nymph is well known in flyfishing world:-)))

Hi Martin,
glad to hear the podcast again, great stuff. I was interested in the fly that you showed, what is it called or if possible how do you tie it? Keep the excellent work up.

nice podcast, interesting point on the hook keeper, I started building my rods a few years ago without the hook keeper, because I didn't like that it interfered with the line during casting. I just started doing the thing you were talking about without giving it any thought about keeping the leader out of the tip top.
nice point.

Appologies accepted, no Danish-Slovak war declared.
Anyway, gr8 podcast, good sound quality, hopefully you´ll add some "moving pictures" in future.

OK, Slovakia then! Sorry, sorry, sorry! I had a hard time remembering all these strange Eastern European countries... They keep on changing borders and names Czechoslovakia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Durkidurkistan, Croatia, Boznia.. duh?
