An Independent Woman’s Guide to Fishing the West

In August of 2016, I quit my corporate Executive job, packed my belongings in my 4Runner and fished the western U.S. I spent 7 weeks on the road, fishing 7 states while traveling 7,000 miles. I fished 48/49 days and focused on meeting up with industry friends and experts to fish multiple species and expand my angling knowledge. In my presentation, I speak to all the above including: techniques, lessons learned, pointers for different states, fish and water, and all else along the way. My presentation focuses on educating, acknowledging and empowering individuals to get out and experience the new while remaining humble and open and supporting local.
