The Sea Trout of Patagonia
A friend says he's heading to Patagonia to fish for sea trout and there is a spare spot.

Small Streams and Big Trout
I got the chance to visit Rio Gallegos in Patagonia.Although the area is most famous for sea trout there is some amazing trout fishing on the main river but there is an amazing spring creek called Rio Chico that in parts, you could jump across.Despite the size though the trout there grow to incredible sizes and if you can land your dry fly in the right place you better hold on!Join me for the few hours I spent on this special piece of water.More from Bella Sofia LodgeDiego CastilloMarcel AppelhanzMachado Outdoor

Sandy Nelson - Rods, Fly Boxes and Mayflies
I catch up with Sandy Nelson and talk with him about the fantastic guide he has put together for the hatches on his local river, The Don. I have always felt we owe the fish to try and learn a little more about what they are eating and Sandy's guide is the perfect way to do so without getting overly technical.We talk about what went into it, get some tips along with fly patterns you might find useful.Although the guide is specific to The Don, the hatches are just the same as you'll encounter on your home water.We also talk about rods too.This is a slightly longer version of the podcast as we cover so much ground but I feel sure you will get plenty from it.Click here to see Sandy's fly guideClick here to see Sandy's fly box

Simon Holme - Chasing the Dream
I first spoke to Simon Holme 3 or so years ago after he phoned me for some advice about how to go about working in the fishing industry.His tenacity meant he landed his first job as a guide in Iceland and after that he booked himself a flight to New Zealand where he has spent time living in a van and fishing the crystal clear rivers for trout.I talk with him about his experience as a guide, the fishing he has encountered on his travels and what he has learnt about himself as an angler and person.Still in his twenties he is a wonderful advert for the future of our pastime.

Nick Measham - Wild Fish
I talk with CEO of Wildfish (formerly Salmon and Trout Conservation) about the work he has done since taking on the role.We also discuss fishing and the new initiative they have introduced called 'Off the Menu' where they are engaging the wider population about the damage salmon farms are doing to the environment along with the poor practices involved in this process.As Christmas is fast approaching and a time when salmon might be on the menu, all I'd ask is that you give this podcast a listen and tell non-fishing family members about what is happening and why we should not be eating farmed salmon.Nick is a smart and engaged person who is prepared to keep fighting on all fronts for the fish that inhabit our waterways.Read more from the Wildfish website
