Welcome to Rivers and Feathers

We are so glad you stopped by to share stories and thoughts about the art and poetry of fly-fishing. Your host, Mike Watts, is a life-long fly-fisher and has even taught fly-fishing at Clemson University for more than 19 years. So relax and sit back to contemplate and explore the conversation, lies, tall tales, and actual stories from Mike and others.

“The solution to any problem -work, love, money, whatever- is to go fishing, and the worse the problem, the longer the trip should be.”

– John Gierach

“It is my fixed conviction that if a parent can give his children a passionate and wholesome devotion to the outdoors, the fact that he cannot leave each of them a fortune does not really matter so much.”

~ Archibald Rutledge
