I grew up fishing the lakes and rivers in Arkansas and continued to enjoy the sport after moving to this area, which offers many opportunities for fresh and salt water fishing. My husband and I have always enjoyed exploring state and national parks and the waters around them.
The idea to add fly fishing to my fishing repertoire really took root when we stumbled upon the Lefty Kreh rock while hiking along the Gunpowder River one very warm November day. During my search for used fly fishing gear, I learned about the Chesapeake Women Anglers. And like many others after attending the CWA Memorial Day weekend retreat, surrounded by friendly faces, patient instruction, laughter, and fishing, the journey with CWA began.
Over the last few years, I have found some awesome fishing buddies through CWA. Even if we weren’t catching fish, we might discover a new fishing hole, practice a cast, or share stories, all the while experiencing the beauty and sounds of nature and enjoying the adventure.
I look forward to supporting our club, making new memories, and improving my skills while sharing good times with CWA members.
