Nice to meet you!
Owner and guide, Liz, grew up fishing in her home state of Pennsylvania. At an early age she learned how to catch trout with her Snoopy pole! Eventually Liz chased steelhead on Lake Erie tributaries with a fly. Fishing has had Liz traveling to many places in the Lower 48, Alaska, and Patagonia although her fly fishing bucket list remains long!
For Liz, fishing is more than a passion or even an obsession. It is weaved into the very fabric of her life. She can’t think of a time in her life when fishing wasn’t a part of it in some way. Liz has her father to thank for initially taking her fishing and treating her like the “son he never had.” As she grew up she also fished with her younger sister. Admittedly to this day, her sister is still the better caster!
The Future of Fly Fishing
Furthermore, Liz wants to share her love of fishing, particularly fly fishing, with the next generation. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge, skills and tricks with other anglers. She wants to “pay it forward” from all of the people who have helped her.
Never Stop Learning
In 2007, Liz attended Hubbard’s Fly Fishing Guide School in Montana. This prepared Liz to provide excellent service to her clients and expand her knowledge of fly fishing.
