In this episode we hear a little bit from my friend Paul Sveum. Paul was my instructor at Jack Mountain Bushcraft School five years ago and has a ton of experience with outdoor living skills, and flyfishing in particular.
Paul is a Registered Maine Guide licensed by the state in the recreation and fishing categories. He has guided extended canoeing, backpacking, and snowshoeing trips in Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Maine in a variety of areas including the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, as well as numerous other locations off the beaten path. He has also guided numerous overnight trips focusing on bushcraft, survival, and local naturalist studies around the South shore of Lake Superior. We had a great chat about ecology, and how learning more about the plant and animal life around you makes you a more effective and aware outdoorsperson. I hope you enjoyed the show as much as we enjoyed recording it.
Full disclosure, Paul and I were joined by his one-and-a-half-year-old daughter for this recording, and she makes a few unexpected appearances.
