I love what The Mayfly Project is doing–to have mentors come along side children in our community, and to teach them the love of fly fishing and for the outdoors is so important. We are so fortunate to live in this beautiful place and have this incredible opportunity.

Montrose, Colorado 

A Texan who relocated to Montrose, Co in 2013. Our family loved coming to this beautiful area to fish and hike every opportunity we got. Finally made the move and what a blessing it has been for our family! So much so, we own a fly shop- Montrose Anglers! We love kids, have 4 of our own, and soon to be 4 grandchildren! I’ve taught through the years in many different settings.
Fly fishing has been such a gift to our kids and the peace that comes from being on the river in God’s creation always fills our soul! Looking forward to sharing that gift with many kids in our community of Montrose, Colorado.
