Running 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. 

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 15 | Ed Ward does not do Podcasts. Except for this one.  In January of 2023, Ed and I return to the Skagit River and reconnect 15 years after the release of one of the best selling fly fishing DVDs of all time, Skagit Master Volume One.  This Podcast might surprise you.  Ed's thoughts on fishing, casting and the Intruder have evolved, and over a glass or two whisky, we go deep into our shared experiences and what fishing means to us now.

Episode 13| There are few people who have caught more tidewater salmon with a fly than Joe Sugura.  In this episode of Fin And Fire with Jeff Mishler, Joe and I share stories from our common past while trying to avoid breaking the one rule of tidewater salmon angling with a fly, and that is, that we don't talk about tidewater salmon angling with a fly.
