Talking Technical on the Yakima River with Joe Rotter
Play • 1 hr 23 min

Our destination is the Yakima River in central Washington with fly fishing guide, outfitter, and instructor Joe Rotter, Reds Fly Shop, Ellensburg, WA.  The Yakima has it all--big western hatches, wild fish that fight like steelhead, beautiful scenery, and cold water all summer long.   It’s a technical fishery that requires casts to teacup-sized targets.  Joe gives a master class on technical fly fishing.  Stick around to the very end for a great story about an unwanted cliff diver who dropped in on Joe’s boat.

With host, Steve Haigh
