As 2020 gets underway, we could not be more excited to partner with the podcast team of Chad Alderson and Nick Hanna (@chadalderson & @norcalflyguy) with the Barbless Fly Fishing Podcast (@barbless.co). You could say that this collaboration started almost three years ago when the guys had me on as one of their first guests ever. Since then a great relationship has formed and I’m ready as ever to join the Barbless.co team and the newly formed Barbless Podcast Network (BPN). I’m lucky to also be joining fellow fly fishing buddies Conway & Michelle Bowman (@conwaybowman, @mishfish49, SoCal) and John McMillan (@rainforest_steel, PNW) as the newest hosts of the BPN team.


I’m currently a man of many hats, however my full time career is running Matt Heron Fly Fishing with my wife Lulana. MHFF is widely considered the primary Fly FIshing School and Outfitter for the Lake Tahoe and Truckee Region. We’re also fortunate enough to run a hosted travel program during the slow season, hosting our guests at some of the world’s finest international destinations and lodges.


That said, it’s truly an honor to be the Regional Director for Cast Hope. Cast Hope is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that brings kids and mentors together outdoors through the sport of fly fishing.

As the newest BPN host I plan on covering a little bit of everything in the fly fishing and outdoor recreation world. Our episodes will cover an array of topics, highlighting non profits, conservation topics, business tactics, fly fishing education with tips and tricks as well as our Behind the Brand series showcasing some of our favorite companies in the outdoor industry.
We look forward to being your go-to source for all things Truckee-Sierra related, on top of bringing you up to date information and stories from our network across the country!
