I had the fortunate opportunity to sit down with world-renowned angler April Vokey in Flordia to record an episode of her Anchored podcast. We had just finished shooting an episode of Das Boat and found ourselves held up with the rest of the crew in Orlando for the ICAST trade show, a perfect time for a podcast. It was undoubtedly humbling to be asked to sit down and talk fishing, life, and photography. Take a listen – I hope you enjoy it.
Anchored with April Vokey, Podcast: ep. 133 “In this episode of Anchored, I was finally able to get Bryan on the show to share a little about his compelling life and career. Bryan is incredibly private and I’m thankful he was willing to take the time to share his story in hopes it may inspire others to work hard for their dreams.”
DAS BOAT, SERIES
Introducing MeatEater’s First Original Fishing Series
We couldn’t be more thrilled to be apart of theOff The Grid Studios team that produced the new fishing series for MeatEater, Inc. It was a few months of long field days, brutal heat, insane humidity, overheating batteries, a few police officers (love you guys), angry non-Florida country club locals, biting bugs, sleepless nights, boiled peanuts, great memories, wonderful people, breathtaking views, wild nature, and interesting characters.
This project was nothing short of an incredible adventure with a remarkable crew. There were so many people that helped make this series run smoothly, you all know who you are. Thank you!
One boat, five fisheries, ten anglers, 2500 miles…unlimited bad ideas. In this new series, Das Boat, MeatEater revives an old aluminum boat from a backyard in Texas and explores angling opportunities with some of our favorite folks. The first episode of Das Boat aired on August 15th on YouTube and Facebook. New episodes come out every Thursday. Yes, it’s FREE!
