Episode 18—Chris Santella

In this episode, I chat with author Chris Santella about his early life, his ventures into writing about flyfishing, and the challenges of writing a book like Fifty Places to Flyfish Before You Die. We also chat about his most recent book publication, The Tug is the Drug, published by Stackpole Books in 2017. 

During the episode, you'll hear a song from Chris's upcoming conservation inspired album recorded with his band, Catch and Release. And of course you'll get a fishing story, this one called 'The Karma of Broken Trailers,' from The Tug is the Drug.
