Traditional Outdoors Podcast – Episode #7 You bet your Glass! with Cameron Mortenson of The Fiberglass Manifesto

In Episode #7 Steve sits down with guest Cameron Mortenson fly fisherman and owner of The Fiberglass Manifesto.

I fell in love with The Fiberglass Manifesto blog the first time I visited it. The articles, the photography and the layout were all superb. It didn’t take a lot of time before I was hooked (pun intended) and started looking for a fiberglass flyrod to try for myself. At the same time I reached out to the owner of the website, Cameron Mortenson and asked if he would like to be a guest on the show. Cameron accepted and after a couple weeks to align schedules we sat down and had an entertaining and educational discussion about fly fishing and the resurgent of fiberglass flyrods. A resurgence that many fly fisherman feel (myself included) Cameron is responsible for.
