The second video from the “Reasons We Fish” series highlights one of my favorite parts of fly fishing with friends and family… River Soda! Fly Fishing takes us to some of the most breathtaking places this earth has to offer. A few sips of river soda just enhances the experience, and it doesn’t stop there… river soda serves another important purpose. We have all had days on the water when nothing goes right. A good sign that it is going to be one of those days is when you snap off Hog Johnson. This is usually followed up by a tangle, snagging a rock, stuck in a tree, snapping Hog Johnson’s big brother off, all while your buddy upstream is slamming them left and right. STOP! Don’t snap that fancy fly rod over your knee… time to reach for the river soda!
