Welcome to Part-Two of the Derek Bird podcast. If you haven’t listened to Part-One yet, I highly encourage you to head over there first. Derek dives into growing up and fishing in British Columbia and paints a beautiful picture of the Canadian Rockies. Derek is a poet with his words. I could just feel the nostalgia and sense those special times with his brother Chris Bird. It was reminiscent of Norman and Paul Maclean from A River Runs Through It.
Derek is a founding Editor of Fly Fusion Magazine and writes the Editor’s column called “Stream Lines” for each issue. He’s a Co-Host for the Fly Fusion TV series as well as the Producer responsible for content acquisition for the International Fly Fishing Film Festival, also known as, IF4, which is seen around the world. Additionally, he’s the author of a new book called, Last Summer On The Sage, that April Volkey says is a riveting tale, full of suspense that had me on the edge of my seat, anxiously turning each page to see what was around the next river bend. In this Part-Two episode we dive behind the scenes of the making of a fly fishing magazine. Being in media, I am inspired by both the creation of a quality fly fishing magazine and the interesting people that make it. We close talking about his great new novel that is getting rave reviews, Last Summer On The Sage…Enjoy!
