Anchored Podcast:

Drew Chicone has made a name for himself as one of the industry’s top fly tiers… and rightfully so. The author of 15 books and a stream of impressive patterns, Drew keeps his finger on innovation, all while continuously providing education and value to his followers and readers. 

In this episode of Anchored, Drew shares his opinion on putting scent on flies, UV materials, the infamous crab, and the ingenuity that goes behind being a ground-breaking fly tier in the industry today.

This episode of Anchored is brought to you by Brush Creek Ranch and their French Creek Sportsmen’s Club.
Located on the historic Sanger Ranch—settled in the 1860s and known as the ‘crown jewel’ of Wyoming’s Platte River Valley—the long held traditions of the outdoor sporting lifestyle continue to this day at French Creek Sportsmen’s Club.

Born of generations of the finest sporting heritage, their ultra-secluded fly-fishing and hunting paradise will far exceed any expectations. With friends or family, only 12 guests have exclusive access to the Sportsmen’s Club at a time. Find more info here.
