In today's episode, we're going back to the early days of Writers on the Fly, with a reading in Bend, Oregon, that started off the first ever Cascadia Tour. This reading happened on November 1, 2016, and featured a handful of great writers and featured photographers as well.
Among the readers in this episode, you'll likely recognize a few familiar voices. Both Amanda Monthei and Steve Duda have been featured on The Fly Tapes previously, so if you'd like to learn more about them, check out their episodes!
New to the podcast today we've got: Copi Vojta, who happens to be the photography editor of The Flyfish Journal, but also a solid writer in his own right. He reads a piece called This Is Us, which was featured in the Journal a while back.
Following Copi you'll hear from Paul Moinester. Paul is part of the braintrust behind the #KeepEmWet campaign, which you've likely seen around social media, and is also half of the team behind the always entertaining Moldy Chum.
Finally, after the break, we hear from Brett Gaba. Brett is a writer and East Coast transplant, and the editor of Steelheader's Journal. His book about fly fishing Maryland's Chesapeake Bay is a real treat, and worth checking out.
Thanks to Sage Fly Fishing for their support of the Fly Tapes.
