In Episode 60 of District of Conservation, Gabriella speaks with Brad Smith of Walton Rods. Brad discusses his journey from outdoor communicator to small business owner/rod maker, shares some perspectives about misconceptions about fly fishing, how social media (especially Instagram) has played an integral role in their business model, why they don’t work with influencers, and retells a story of almost being attacked by a log-wielding homeless man while fishing.
