Dave Smith of DSD--Dave Smith Decoys--knows how to hunt geese.  In the episode of Fin and Fire With Jeff Mishler, Dave and I go deep into the world of waterfowling and discuss calling, blinds, dogs, hunting with friends and of course, decoys. It is a long conversation so bring some whisky, and join us.

About Jeff Mishler

Jeff Mishler is a fifth generation Oregonian who's life work is hard to quantify. Father, writer, photographer, television commercial director, environmentalist, video producer/distributor, website manager, hunter, angler and lifelong recreationist who lives a fly-by-the-seat-of-yourpants mantra. If he’s not in his office writing another essay or developing a show concept, he’s chasing mallards and pheasants with his lab Hailey, running his jet sled up a local river to a sweet steelhead run, setting up on a screaming bull elk with bow in hand or conspiring with his small circle of equally affected steelhead bums while downing healthy portions of really good Oregon beer.

Episode 6What is it like to work as a full time fishing guide and live the grind that comes with it? What is it like to spend half the year in Alaska, the other half in the woods of Michigan? I sit down with Robbie at Blue Fly B&B in King Salmon and discuss how he got his job and  whether his expectations were met when the dream became a reality.

Episode 5Running a fishing lodge in Alaska is challenging. Running a fishing lodge in Alaska during the pandemic is more so. Catching COVID and surviving in the process...well that makes for a good conversation. I sit down with my good friend Patricia Edel, owner of Blue Fly B&B and dive into the reality of living full time in King Salmon, Alaska. It takes commitment and a strong sense of independence.  And a good sense of humor.

Episode 4 | Have you ever considered making a drastic change in your life to create the life you always dreamed of?

Rob Perkin used the downtime in the pandemic to make that change. He built the boat, by hand, got a captain's license and then set out to explore the near shore coastal environs of the pacific ocean with the intent of sharing his knowledge through a growing guide business.

This conversation goes deep into the process of how you make the great change.
