Air Date:
Heard On Route 51

Fishing is a time-honored tradition in north central Wisconsin, which is home to thousands of lakes, streams and rivers filled with a variety of species. Fly fishing elevates the sport to a true art form, with its own relaxing rhythm and style, offering a connection to the outdoors that some enthusiasts say borders on obsession.

Host Shereen Siewert welcomes Heidi Oberstadt, Trout Unlimited diversity initiative coordinator for the state of Wisconsin and upper Midwest, and Dan Perkins, a former fly fishing guide and professor at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, for an in-depth look at the appeal of fly fishing.
