Episode 19—Will Rice

In today's episode, I chat with Will Rice, an East Coast native and Pacific Northwest transplant by way of Colorado. 

Will's work has been featured in The Denver Post, The Drake Magazine, The Flyfish Journal, and Angling Trade, among other publications.

Will sums up his fly fishing and writing philosophy pretty well: "I have always had one guiding philosophy for my outdoor writing: I am not alone," says Will. "If I think something is cool or have a kick ass experience, there are a ton of other folks who will be interested in hearing about it and best case entertained - and possibly even inspired to get out and do something new. Pretty simple stuff."

Episode 06—Selected Readings #1

This week's episode starts off with Will Rice reading a piece about close calls with jet boats while searching for steelhead. It's called "Near Death by the Numbers." Will read this piece in Vancouver, British Columbia, during the 2016 Writers on the Fly Cascadia Tour. Will's work has been published in The Drake, The Flyfish Journal, Saltwater Fly Fishing, and Angling Trade. 

Following Will, we've got poet Cameron K. Scott. Cameron has published two poetry collections—The Book of Ocho and The Book of Cold Mountain. Cameron's reading in Portland last year during the 2016 Cascadia Tour is included in its entirety. His work has been published in too many places to name, but you can learn more about him at this website: WriterFish.com

Last, but certainly not least, we've got Alex Collier. An Appalachia native, Alex now lives in Seattle with his wife and their son, Haven, and he works as a fishing guide in the Puget Sound area. This piece, "Just Enough, But Not Too Much," was recently published in The Flyfish Journal. This reading is from the 2017 Cascadia Tour in Seattle.
