Way back in June of 2017 we released the first episode of The DrakeCast, which featured the musician Sean Carey. He told us about his living room tours across the country that were more or less an excuse for him to fish with his best friends. We take the first half of this episode to hear some of Sean’s new music and his latest fishing adventures. In the second half of the episode we check in with Capt. Jeff Johnson of Rockport, Texas to hear how the people and fish of the Texas coast are faring after the devastation wrought by Hurricane Harvey.
Many thanks to our faithful friends at Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures and Scott Fly Rods for their continued support of The DrakeCast.
If you aren’t familiar with the music of S. Carey, take a few minutes to listen to the first episode of The DrakeCast. If you’re all caught up, this episode will bring you new music from S. Carey’s latest album, More I See. As mentioned above, later on in the show we talk with Capt. Jeff Johnson about how the fishing has been in Rockport, Texas following Hurricane Harvey. Johnson was actually up in Alaska filming a pike fishing video when the storm made landfall. Upon his return to cell service in Anchorage, Johnson had the misfortune of opening his phone to a screenshot of the eye of the hurricane centered on Rockport. Ever since his reconnection with the 21st century, Johnson and the entire community have been working to restore their town to what it was before the storm.
Finally, if you haven’t caught the music video for S. Carey’s song, Yellowstone, make sure to check it out below. The video was filmed and produced by Chase & Aimee Bartee of Tight Loops Fly, who also made the award winning film, Northern Exposure.
