"Kirk Deeter is the editor of Angling Trade. He is also an editor-at-large for Field & Stream magazine, and the editor-in-chief of TROUT magazine, the national publication of Trout Unlimited. He has written and fished throughout the world, and his work also has appeared in other media including WIRED, Garden & Gun, USA Today, London’s Daily Telegraph newspaper, and the full range of fly-fishing magazines and websites. He is also the co-author of The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing."
In this episode, I chat with Kirk about his beginnings in fly fishing and outdoor writing, the importance of finding and chasing the things you're passionate about, and where he hopes to go next.
We also get three readings from Kirk: "In Search of the River Gods" from Field & Stream; a selection from Kirk's and Andrew Steketee's book CastWork; and "The Fight of Your Life," from Garden & Gun Magazine.
Music from Nathaniel Riverhorse Nakadate.
