It's hard to say which is sweeter about Jackson - the epic fishing, or the honey hole of amazing women anglers. This week we speak to one of the staples of that community, Clairey Grubbs. Fly-fishing is the even keel of Clairey's life, and she talks about what it's like to be a part of her community and raise her son in the same lifestyle. Plus, we talk about dutch oven cooking at hunt camp, winning yourself a husband after cooking an amazing sea bass, and what it's like to learn from your significant other (or not).
