Sam Ayres is a hunter, podcaster, and most recently, a new fly fisherman. Sam grew up catching fat stocker rainbows on a spin rod but always wanted to try fly fishing. After picking up his first rod a year ago, he has slowly started building up his knowledge and skills. And in the past few months, he’s had more time to seriously devote to it. Since he recently passed through Colorado after an Arizona elk hunt, we decided to hit the water together and get him on his first cutthroats and brown trout. After our day on the river, we sat down to record an episode about our day of fishing, what he has learned and been surprised by during the process, and other thoughts as a new angler. Also, check out Sam’s podcast, The Wild Initiative (which may sound familiar to those of you who have listened to Fish Untamed since the beginning), and his digital media services company, TWI Digital.
