The DrakeCast flyfishing podcast

Episode #1 of The DrakeCast follows the band S. Carey through Northern Wisconsin as they chase for illusive Wisconsin Wintertrout. Their melancholy music fills the background as we uncover the band’s rise to fame and subsequent quest for solitude. 

Listen to the audio:
Sean Carey and Ben Lester met while attending the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire. As music majors, they sat next to each other in their percussion studio. Soon enough, they began making weekend pilgrammages to Wisconsin's Driftless Area in search of trout. In this episode, we discover how the duo has integrated flyfishing into their lives as musicians, outdoorsmen, and travelers. We take a trip to a creek on the northern tip of the Driftless Area and cap it off with a few Leinenkugels brews at the local tavern.
 
The music of S. Carey plays throughout the podcast, and you can really hear the stream flowing in time with the melody.
 
Many thanks to our friends at Scott Fly Rods and Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures.
