Episode Show Notes

Published October 28th, 2019


In this special Conference Series of The Barbless Fly Fishing Podcast we travel to Denver, Colorado to join our gracious booth hosts Scott Fly Rods and Damsel Fly Fishing. The two brands let us set up our pop-up studio in their booths to interview a variety of folks that were at the show.  It was inspiring and humbling to be around so many industry professionals who have given their lives to improve the sport of fly fishing at all levels.

We learned a lot at IFTD 2019 and we hope you will as well!

Episodes 108 through 117 cover the event, so be sure to start at 108 and work forward.

To kick off Day One of IFTD 2019 we sit down with Jim Bartschi to discuss the finer points of rod design and learn about Scott’s latest “Sector Series” saltwater rod that was already generating a lot of buzz at the event.
