Susan Thrasher is a guide and owner of Southern Brookies Fly Fishing, an outfitter based in Tennessee. She’s also the author of a new book, Thrasher’s Fly Fishing Guide. This is a great all-around guide book for anyone interested in fly fishing, from the beginner to the advanced angler. In this episode, Susan and I chat about her background, what inspired her to write her book, and the next generation of fly fishermen. With a fairly high barrier to entry, fly fishing can be intimidating to try, so we discuss resources to get started if you’re new, and how to be a good instructor for a child, partner, or friend who’s learning.
