Exerpt from The Destination Angler Podcast: 

“Our destination is the world-famous Grey Reef on the North Platte River with Blake Jackson, co-owner of the Ugly Bug Fly Shop, Casper Wyoming.  Grey Reef is one of the great tail waters of the west, offering a 70-mile western fly fishing experience with oversized, football-shaped wild trout, and plenty of solitude where 50 fish days are common. “

” Today, we explore the Reef, Miracle Mile, and Fremon Canyon and the conservation story behind the trophy fly fishing here, plus slow-it-down streamer techniques, local fly patterns, stories from Mongolia, Wyoming elk hunting, naked customers, and why you need to cast to the center of the stream.”
