We’re in between podcast seasons and on a little bit of a summer time break. However I needed to keep up a correspondence right here. I’d prefer to let you know extra in regards to the Troutbitten Undertaking — about all the branches, what’s coming subsequent and the way all of this ties collectively.
Season 4 of the Troutbitten podcast begins on August 14th. It’s a five-part tactical sequence on Dry Dropper styles. We adopted the identical platform — or fashion — in season two, once we lined the Nine Essential Skills of Tight Line and Euro Nymphing. These are compact, informational episodes that element one narrowly targeted subject. I’ll be joined once more by my buddy, Austin Dando, to construct by way of the framework of this enjoyable, efficient fashion. And by the tip of the sequence, you need to have an intensive understanding of the three types for dry dropper.
Perhaps you’ve by no means considered dry dropper this fashion. However the level is, there are three drastically completely different ways in which we fish dry dropper. The rigs, the casting, the ways and the intentions for every fashion are distinctive to every technique. And positive, there’s some crossover, however in some ways, these types are extra completely different than they’re related. I name them Mild Dry Dropper, Bobber Dry Dropper (or commonplace dry dropper for you purists on the market) and Tight Line Dry Dropper.
In order that podcast sequence — Season 4 — begins August 14th. However now’s a great time to say that this full Dry Dropper sequence already exists on the Troutbitten web site. The Three Kinds of Dry Dropper is a 4 half sequence that I printed on Troutbitten a couple of years in the past.

By following that route, I maintained the copyright to my very own works, so I can nonetheless do issues like this — taking the Dry Dropper Kinds sequence and constructing a podcast across the subject.
It finally ends up that the alternatives I made years in the past, fortuitously setup every part that Troutbitten has grown into. And since it’s a lot greater than an internet site now, I discuss with all of this because the Troutbitten Undertaking.
Troutbitten has had a YouTube channel for a few years. However this previous spring, I partnered with my buddy, Josh Darling of Wilds Media, to create and publish a brand new video each two weeks. Transferring into video is thrilling, as a result of it permits me to indicate and show issues that I’ve struggled to place into writing. It’s additionally an opportunity to push the format a bit. Josh and I attempt to construct some fashion and artwork into these academic movies. It’s simply one other probability to be inventive.
We’re constructing on two completely different YouTube sequence in the meanwhile. We began the Troutbitten Ideas sequence early this yr, with brief, uniquely useful ideas that cowl the spectrum of fly fishing for river trout. And just some weeks in the past, we started including onto the sequence about Fly Fishing the Mono Rig. Josh and I had beforehand printed two streamer movies overlaying this subject, and now we’ve refocused the Mono Rig ways into this new sequence format.
