Catch and release

I spend some time - almost an hour, actually, sorry about that - talking about killing fish, releasing fish, fishing ethics, spawning fish, endangered fish, escaped hatchery fish and many other aspects of fishing to eat and fishing to release.

Dave, I'm glad yo...


I'm glad you like the podcasts. They are fun doing and give quite a lot of feedback. I have acquired a couple of small microphones from Giant Squid (sic!), which were reasonably priced and looked great. The sound is fine even though I'm still struggling with the wind noise - but it's better. I recorded a new episode this weekend, and as soon as I'm done mixing it, you can hear a sample of the quality.

I'm not quite done experimenting yet, but I'm getting there...


Another great podcas...

Another great podcast, Martin. I so much appreciate receiving and listening to them. The last one with you recording in bed was a special touch. :-) Though I've never fished for Sea Trout - or in the ocean for that matter - I look forward to each podcast and listen as soon as I have opportunity.

I've been following your new recorder with interest. Have you decided on an external mic for it yet? I bought an external mono mic for my Edirol but it doesn't sound nearly as good as the built in dual stereo speakers. I'd like to get one that I can use on the outside of my clothing with the recorder inside out of the rain.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
