Mike and I have joined up together to bring some creative teamwork action to the Back Page of Souther Culture on the Fly. Yea, maybe it is because these guys are our friends and feel somewhat sorry for us, but we are taking full advantage of the situation. I wouldn’t call it the anchor of the magazine by any means…but when you are going out the backdoor of the E-zine, take 2 minutes to check it out then give us a solid slap on the ass. Hopefully some good stuff to come through this assault on the internet.
A couple weeks ago, I hate to say it…Mike and I recorded a new Episode of Right Brain Retrieve and I failed everyone. I had been a few weeks since the last one so we were itching pretty good for it. We had a solid discussion on the whole Yeti/NRA theasco, talked about music and spoke with Drew Chicone about his Fly Tying and recent books that he had created. We summed it up with a little chat with our friend Riverhorse Nakadante. To sum up, it was a great and effortless recording that was exactly what it’s supposed to be.
As I normally do, I uploaded it to the computer to let the people have it and there seemed to be a lot of dead, silent space on it. Panic set it as I realized I never plugged the recording out line into the microphone. Before we recorded, the sound line was moving al over the display screen, so it looked like it was recording. It was recording, but just the ambient sound of Mike and I, nothing through the computer where the music, sounds phone calls and other magic comes through. Its a pretty sad feeling when this happens, as there is no way to re-create the conversations and great things that happen during our podcast. We will re-call Drew and of course talk about the same stuff when we record again, but it will be different…hopefully in a good way.
We are lucky enough to have our friend Frank Smethhurst sit in with us as he is on his F3T tour stop between Charleston and Atlanta. We also have special guest Mike Sepelak as he discusses his writing. We also bring up other topics in the confluence of creation and fly fishing come together.
This is the first in hopefully many installments of a new project that we are playing around with. With the lack of blog updates in the last couple years, I hope to bring new life into this website with the Podcast. We will be bringing you all kinds of creative directions, ideas and the people that create them to you via conversations, reading and any other ways that come up. We hope you enjoy it!
