Ep 44: Fly Fishing the Everglades, with John Kumiski

John Kumiski is a writer, photographer, guide, and teacher. After leaving his childhood home in Massachusetts and settling down in Florida, John got to know the Everglades quite well. While it’s easy to think of the vast landscapes of the west or the dense woods of the northeast when you hear the word “backcountry,” John frequently finds the same solitude by paddling deep into the marshes and brackish water of the Everglades, camping on chickees and fishing from a kayak. In this episode, we discuss the Everglades as a whole, fish species, gear and techniques, special considerations for this area of the country, and some things to keep in mind if you’re trying to plan your own trip to fish in Florida.
