Your name or any nicknames you have?
Where are you at in the world? Where will you be?
What river(s) and lake(s) do you guide/fish?
I fish all over CO, I travel every weekend to explore new places. I fish South Platte, the Roaring Fork, the eagle, lots of tailwaters, alpine lakes and more.
How long have you been guiding/fly fishing?
I have been fly fishing consistently for 4 years now.
What got you into fly fishing? When did you start?
I was 21 when I started fly fishing, I had fished with spin rods my entire life and I was intrigued by a more interactive way of fishing.
Why do you fly fish? What does it “do” for you?
Fly fishing takes me to places I never would’ve gone to just “go”. I have witnessed so many amazing places, animals, people, experiences, etc. For me, fly fishing challenges and empowers me and I like that.
If you own and use a Rod Vault, what do you like about you Rod Vault?
I actually have one on the way, can’t wait!
As a woman guide/angler, you’re definitely in the minority. What made you decide to be a guide/angler?
Has the fact you’re a female ever been an issue with a client or other angler (such as them hitting on you or maybe talking down to you?) If so how did you manage it/them?
What is a piece of advice you want to give to other anglers or a tip/trick that has helped you grow as an angler?
Always keep a good attitude! I struggle and get frustrated but at the end of the day it’s a learning process and if it was easy it wouldn’t be worth it!
