Anchored Podcast:


Sam Lungren grew up on Whidbey Island in Washington’s Puget Sound. He spent summers working aboard an Alaskan commercial salmon seiner while studying journalism in college. After obtaining his master’s degree in environmental journalism, his thesis project about the controversial effects of steelhead hatcheries launched his career as an outdoors writer. Soon he was contributing to The Drake, Gray’s Sporting Journal, Fly Rod & Reel, Stonefly, Bugle and The Flyfish Journal. 

Sam spent the last five years as the editor of Backcountry Journal, the quarterly membership magazine of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, and recently joined the MeatEater editorial team as a writer and editor with an emphasis on fishing and conservation.  In this episode of Anchored, Sam and April sit down to discuss commercial fishing, eating fish, and the harsh realities of catch and release fishing.
