In this Fly Fishing Q&A video, Brian breaks down how to clean the sweat and grime off of your fly fishing rod handle using Murphy's Oil Soap. A guest chimed in that his rod handle was covered with sweat and grease over the years, so Brian showed him the oil soap and it worked like a charm!

A couple other viewers asked about tippet materials and hopper dropper rigs, Brian gives his opinion on the hopper dropper with additional variations. Breaking down tippet, flies and length. Watch all the way through as this is an informative fly fishing video you're not going to want to miss!

The hopper dropper is highly effective and utilizing it is a must. However, there are plenty of variations, alternatives and things you can change that can greatly impact your effectiveness on the water.

Learning to Shoot a Bow with Flip Pallot

We recently ventured down to Florida to meet up with our good friend, Flip Pallot. Well, after an evening of catching up by the fire, we thought it would be a great to have Flip share something he loves with us: Archery.

We shot Flips longbow that he crafted himself from Osage Orange Tree wood and shark skin. With Flips instruction and Brian's hidden natural prowess for shooting a bow led to a pretty great time! Why don't you see for yourself:

Big thanks for Flip for letting us visit him for a time and film awesome stuff. This video was a blast to make! Head over and subscribe to Flip's channel here. Stay tuned, we have a lot more coming at you on our YouTube channel. Be sure to head over there and subscribe for a lot more!
