Good Karma Sportfishing Podcasts

    • What are you going to get? Lots of tips, conversations with other anglers and/or clients, fishing topics such as weather, gear reviews and even mistakes.
    • When? Every week depending on my schedule (and it’s Free). Also keep in touch with me for my blog updates as they will provide a lot of valuable information to help you improve on the water. They may also have gear and product reviews.
    • Why? Why not- Fishing is fun and quite frankly a necessary escape for a lot of anglers- me included.  My podcasts are meant to withstand so you can go back and listen and try tips again or quite frankly just have something else to listen.
    • Connect? Would like to hear from you as well so feel free to reach out- Facebook, Instagram or email me. goodkarmaryan@gmail.com
    • My goal is to help you, “Leave the small fish for the boat behind you.”
