Episode 24—Matt Smythe

In this episode, I sit down with poet Matt Smythe. 

From the American Fly Fishing Trade Association:

"A freelance writer since 2011, Matt has worked in advertising since 2004 holding positions from business development to creative direction on brands like General Motors, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Thomas & Thomas, and ScentBlocker. He’s also a filmmaker and published writer with stories and poetry appearing in Fly Fish Journal, The Drake, Midcurrent, Boating Magazine, Southern Culture on the Fly, Post Magazine, and others.

An Army veteran and native of the Finger Lakes region in Western New York where he lives with his wife and three kids, Matt is an avid outdoorsman who grew up fishing, bowhunting, and camping, learning how to fly fish during grad school."

Thanks to Sage Fly Fishing for their support.

Episode 20—Chris Dombrowski

In today's episode, I chat with writer Chris Dombrowski. Chris' most recent book, Body of Water, was published by Milkweed Editions in 2016, though he has been writing and publishing poetry and prose for quite some time. 

His work has been featured in Orion Magazine, Terrain.Org, Outside Magazine, and Angler's Journal, to name a few. Most recently, The Drake Magazine featured a profile of David James Duncan, Chris' friend and fishing partner, in the Summer 2018 issue. 

To learn more about Chris and his work--including the Beargrass Writing Retreat which takes place each summer--visit his website.
