Finatical Flyfishing created to feature female guides

There are more women guiding than ever before and many of these women have inspirational stories. Finatical Flyfishing was created to feature them and offer hosted travel with the outfitters who support them.

For example, Patty Reilly has guided all over the western United States; from Jackson Hole and Yellowstone to Alaska and many rivers in between. She then went to South America where she and a partner became the first commercial operator to get a permit and guide in Argentina. Patty is co-hosting a 2022 trip to Ascension Bay, Mexico, with Finatical Flyfishing.

Karlie Roland guides on the Henry’s Fork for Trouthunter, and she will be one of the guides during Finatical Flyfishing’s women’s trip on the Henry’s Fork in August. If you are interested in these trips or others for women anglers, by women anglers, contact Steph Albano at (208) 220-0706 or
