I became interested in Will Taylor when I noticed his photos on Instagram. Each photo has a different look and feel to it, and I was very interested in his North Georgia waters.  Blue Ridge was only down the road, about an hour away, from where I grew up in Chattanooga, TN. Yet, I had no idea that trout the size of my leg lived there.

I made contact with Will and found him to be a great guy who would make for an interesting guest on Saltwater Experience.  We scheduled it and then met at Hawks Cay a few weeks later.  I wanted to have Will on the show because I wanted to visit him in North Georgia and experience this amazing fishing.  We are getting close to filming the episode when I go visit him, and hopefully it will turn out as good as when he came to visit us.

After fishing, we sat down for a while and talked about all sorts of stuff.  Will told me how he got started, why he spends a lot of time in Florida, his struggles and successes with sponsorship, and his thoughts on the future of fly-fishing.  I thought it was a good conversation, and I really enjoyed my time with Will. 

I hope you enjoy this episode.  If you do, please rate and review the show on iTunes and share it with your friends.  The above links are easily sharable on all types of social media or embedable on any blog.  Thank you for listening and, as always, please let me know what you would like covered and who you might like to see me talk to.

See you on the water,
