20: THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF TROUT - THE PRACTICAL AND PRAGMATIC ROSENBAUER APPROACH - SMALL STREAM TROUT FISHING TO HATCH MATCHING STRATEGIES
Don't miss this podcast!...The great Charlie Fox wrote an amazing book on this wonderful world of trout worship. My guest on this special troutbum troubadour episode is an iconic man that’s name and brand he represents is synonymous with fly fishing world wide. His talents and approach have been exemplary and he has been an iconic fly fishing sensei master for decades. His ground breaking Orvis helmsman ship of creativity, design and making fly fishing has been a mainstream part of the modern outdoor experience for the fine connoisseur of country sporting gentleman and lady that Orvis has been a hallmark of excellence and quality for over a century. But more importantly he has been a breath of fresh air to the novice that needs nurturing. With his amazing and prolific book authorships he has thought countless thousands of novices and experts the finer details of fly fishing for trout in every venue. But I have always been envying his practical pragmatic approach...whereas my dreamy, theoretical, anthropomorphisms and mind twisting selectivity romanticism to fly fishing is a perfect opposite and compliment to this wonderful world of trout that demands both simplicity yet precision in presentation, along with fly pattern exactness to fool big trout that can be very fussy. So without further adieux…I am honored to present the living Bergman and Brooks reincarnate that typifies a treatise of a troutbum, he is the pragmatic prophet that makes the conundrum of fly fishing easy to comprehend for a novices' nexus to becoming a master….he has done to fly fishing to introduce and make it exciting and fun as did fellow Vermontonians Ben and Jerry’s did to vanilla ice cream, and Bernie Sanders did to get millennials to be passionate about something again….all in the honor of the Fedora Flea Flicking Troutbum…the one and only “all hat and all cowboy”- which is rare…the most prolific fly fishing author that ever graced this wonderful world of trout- Rosenbauer himself. #orvisflyfishing #tomrosenbauer #smalltroutstreams #newyorkstatetroutstreams #hatchmatchingstrategies #orvisflyfishingbooks #orvispodcast #selectivitytrout #catskillflyfishing #mayflies #caddisflies # stoneflies #dryfly #euronymphing #streamers #browntroutatlanticsalmonnexus #matthewsupinski #hallowedwatersjournal #hallowedwaterspodcast

19: The Genesis and Evolution of Terrestrials-The Pennsylvania Limestone Spring Creek Legacy with Tommy Baltz
Perfect timing for the terrestrial fly fishing days of August, I am pleased to introduce Pennsylvania’s living  iconic legend…A dean of the Cumberland Valley “Limestone Alley” of selectivity’s snooty trout sanctity. He is a limestone spring creek guru that lives in the shadows and legacy of Marinaro, Shenk, Fox and Koch. Hallowed Waters host Matthew Supinski teams up with Orvis fly fishing guide and world-renowned fly tying guest Tommy Baltz as they discuss in-depth the hallowed waters of the Letort, Big Spring, Falling Spring and Yellow Breeches and their selective trout imprint on the Pennsylvania limestone spring creek legends and their contribution to modern American terrestrial fly fishing. Fly pattern designs and dynamics like the Letort Hopper and Crickets, beetles, ants, Jassids, cicadas and so much more are focused on! I have known Tommy since my Washington D.C. hotelier days having fished the Pennsylvania limestone creeks weekly back then in the 80’S as he and I have fished with some of the legends back then. We discuss our relationships, epiphanies and interesting anecdotes with those limestone legends, their amazing ground breaking books which influenced mine and how it influenced all of us and modern fly fishing today…don’t miss this one! #hallowedwatersjournal #hallowedwaterspodcast #flyfishng #terrestrialinsects #letrortspringrun #bigspringrun #fallingspringsbranch #yellowbreechescreek #cumberlandvalley #limestonespringcreeks #pennsylvanniaflyfishing #pennsylvanniaflyfishngmuseum #limestonelegends #vincemarinaro #edshenk #edkoch #charlesfox #tommybaltz #matthewsupinski #springcreeks #springcreek #sprucecreek #georgeharvey #allenberry #letrorthopper #letortcricket #ants #beetles #mossycreek #orvisflyfishing #selectivitybook #moderndryflycode #intheringoftherise #browntroutatlanticsalmonnexus

16: The Mayfly Mystique and Saga - Trout Selectivity and Matching the Hatch from the Meniscus to Benthos - Special Guest: Al Caucci
Don’t miss this one! Hallowed Waters Podcast/Journal publisher Matthew Supinski hosts special guest Al Caucci in a highly informative podcast for all you dry fly and hatch chasing Trout Bums and bug addicts. Al is the Catskill and Delaware River living iconic legend who authored “Hatches” and invented the Compara-Dun series of mayfly imitations, along with the Spectrumized color and tone concept to matching the hatch. He is the elderly mayfly maestro of the mesmerizing hatch matching magic from the dry fly, emerger and spinner meniscus, to the nymphing benthos. This Italian American Latin bug master has devised a pragmatic and meticulous hatch matching system from the minutiae, to macro and to the manicotti with his worldly love for Italian food and country. This guy catches big selective Catskill and Montana trout with the seduction of a sorcerer’s spell casted in the form of a Compara-dun. Together with Supinski they discuss matching the hatch through the seasons, selectivity by trout to fly design and all the nuances and peculiarities to fooling wild fussy trout in every venue and destination. #hallowedwatersjournal #hallowedwaterspodcasts #matthewsupinski #alcaucci #hatchesbook #comparadun #dryflyfishing #matchingthehatch #meniscus #dun #spinnerfall #emergers #mayflies #Catskillflyfishng #Delawarewildtrout #Delawareriver #CarlRichrads #DickPobst #JohnRandolph #FlyFishermanMagazine #MayfliesofMichigan #Selectivetrout #Selectivitybook #browntroutatlanticsalmonnexus #Montana #Springcreeks #VinceMarinaro #PrestonJennings #GaryLafontaine #ErnestScwiebert #FredArbona #JohnMiller #Ephemerella #maskinghatch #graydrakehatch #sulphers #PMD #drakes

15: Indigenous Brook Trout-Are they America’s Fly Fishing Founding Fish? or not?! Guest: Maine’s Bob Mallard
Part of the “Indigenous, Introductions and Invasive’s ” Series.  Buckle your seatbelts and prepare for an intense couple of hours all you Salmonid saveurs and fellow Troutbum troubadours as Matthew Supinski, host and publisher of Hallowed Waters Journal and Podcasts; along with guest Bob Mallard take you listeners on a controversial, highly opinionated and riveting podcast that you surely can’t afford to miss! If you love wild brook trout, wild brown trout and rainbows, form your own opinions as the two authors joust opinions about their passions and favorite fish, and what is the right thing in the bigger scheme of things.  Have we become gods trying to manipulate the natural world in favor of what we love? Have we loved Brook Trout to death and put them on the highest pedestal of glory and worship? Are we being to virtuous and over-zealous when we eradicate other fish for the sake of what we think is pure and natural? Brook Trout were the poster child fish of the first French fur trappers, colonials and Native Americans – they came to worship and love them. But as indigenous North American Atlantic salmon are on the verge of threatened extinction, and native brook trout populations continue to plummet, are brook trout in climate change’s favor? Can man’s greedy appetite to develop wilderness sanctuary waters someday be the death knell for these amazing game fish? And where do Brown Trout and Rainbows fit in to the mix? Will the more these more aggressive and highly adaptable trout become our universal salmonids of the future? #hallowedwatersjournal #hallowedwaterspodcast #brooktrout #wildtrout #browntrout #rainbowtrout #flyfishing #Maineflyfishing #BobMallard #NativeFishCoalition #Squaretail #browntroutatlanticsalmonnexus #matthewsupinski #coasterbrooktrout #salterbrooktrout #selectivityflyfishing  #selectivetrout #gloomisrods #orvismission #abelreels #harelinedubbin #anglersportgroup

12: Michigan's Trout/Steelhead/Salmon Grand Legacy featuring James Dexter: Michigan Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Cheif
New Series-"Introductions, Invasive's and Indigenous Restorations" With more cold, clean fresh water than anywhere on the planet, the  grand Great Lakes State of Michigan is a true Trout, Salmon and  Steelhead utopia for anglers form all over the world! Along with  Hallowed Waters Podcast host Matthew Supinski, James Dexter and the host  discuss the amazing species introduction accomplishments of Michigan to  bring the brown trout from Europe to the Western Hemisphere, Steelhead  rainbow trout to the Great Lakes from the West Coast, and the innovative  Pacific Salmon experiment to Lake Michigan to combat the alewife bait  explosion, and thus created a whole new epic era of angling for the  entire Great Lakes system. Michigan's vision to establish a world-class  Atlantic Salmon fishery, which produced and still holds the IGFA world  record ,and it's pioneering vision to restore the Coaster Brook Trout  and now recently the indigenous Arctic Grayling populations in it's home  state waters that border on 4 of the 5 Great Lakes is truly  ground-breaking! On a more sobering side, the exotic invasive species  brought here by intercontinental ocean-going freighters to the Graet  Lakes as a whole are sending biologists into a tail-spin to have to deal  with them, and which are disrupting the food chains and prey/predator  balances at an alarming rate. Along with climate change and its impacts,  there are many challenges in the coming years and to what the future  holds to maintaining a world-class salmonid fishery that most take for  granted.
