Fly Fishing Adventures in Baghdad
with Joel Stewart

Joel Stewart found himself based in Camp Victory on the grounds of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's former Al Faw Palace. He fished numerous man-made lakes stocked by the former dictator with a variety of sport fish. Soon he was teaching others how to fly fish. Thus, the Baghdad School of Fly Fishing was born, an angling club that remained in existence for the remainder of the time American troops were in Iraq. Listen in to hear about the exotic fish Joel caught, how the Baghdad School of Fly Fishing was born and how it flourished during times of war.

I thoroughly enjoyed the show about flyfishing in Bagdad. Your guest was an excellent interview and brought an interesting perspective to the sport. I was also pleased to hear that he continues to devote his time with the Project Healing Waters organization. Great show!
