24 How Heather Hodson Makes It Happen

Read more

Wow! What an awesome episode this is! If you fly fish or have thought about fly fishing (or even if you don't) you are going to want to listen to this episode. We had so much fun! We were very fortunate that Heather Hodson known as northwestflygirl on Instagram was able to take time out of her extremely busy schedule to talk with us and not only entertain us with some fishing stories, but teach us some stuff along the way. Heather is one of the West's leading fly fishing  personalities and you won't find a better representative for women in the sport. We are excited to see where her organization United Women On the Fly goes and how big it will get to be. She is fiercely dedicated to her passion to get more women on the water and we don't doubt she will accomplish and far surpass all her goals. Please do as Heather asks and "keep your fish wet". Thank you Heather and keep up the good work!
