Tucker Ladd is the owner of Trouts Fly Fishing, a Denver, Colorado-based fly shop and outfitting service. Tucker has spent his entire professional career in the fly fishing industry, where he has worked as a fishing guide, fly shop employee, and now a shop owner with two locations. In 2005, Tucker’s dream of owning a fly shop was realized when he purchased Trouts, the same fly shop where he had learned to fish as a young man. Over the past 15 years, Tucker has grown Trouts into the industry-leading fly shop that it is today. In this episode, Tucker and Jim discuss key pieces of gear for traveling the world, packing and purchasing tips and techniques, flies, pre-trip preparation, the best travel luggage, common gear and packing mistakes to avoid, and more.
