Show Notes: wetflyswing.com/grabflies/
In episode 14 of the Fly Fishing Show I had the pleasure of interviewing Jeff Layton from Grabflies.com. Jeff talks about the patterns he does well on and sells in his fly shop along with some new and innovative products for attaching sinking tips.
We cover the Olympic Pennisula rivers, the North Umpqua along with all of the flies that have helped a bunch of fisherman get into some really nice steelhead.
