Whew! I made it through this podcast interview with Trout Unlimited without developing a case of Tourette’s and accidentally blurting out an obscenity or random thought about how french fries are really better for you than baked potatoes. (I am always trying to convince my husband of this.) And of course we are ALL lucky this interview was recorded before Blake Shelton made those disparaging remarks about country music legends or I might have hijacked the entire podacst as a platform to wage war with Mr. Miranda Lambert and show my support for Ray Price.
But as it turns out, I was perfectly well behaved so they published the podacst yesterday. I am very honored that Chris Wood, President and CEO of Trout Unlimited, invited me to be a guest on his podcast series, and we really had a great time talking – I think we could have gone on and on! I encourage you to take a few minutes and listen to our conversation. We cover:
1. How I chose the name FLY FISH CHICK for my blog
2. My book PADDLEFISH and the arduous river adventure, The Texas Water Safari
3. How to get more women into flyfishing; why it’s a challenge; what I think we should do about it
Really you should listen to the podcast for topic number three as we had a fairly interesting dialog about getting women into flyfishing. Unless you haven’t bought a copy of Paddlefish yet, in which case you should focus on the part in the middle. And then the part about women in fishing.
Hell, just listen to the whole thing…
Thanks to Chris Hunt and Chris Wood at TU for making this happen! And if any of you have additional thoughts on how to get more women to the sport of fly fishing, as always, feel free to shout it from the mountain top….or the comments. And maybe shouting is a bit extreme…all caps are so 90s. Regardless, we’d all love to hear your thoughts!
