Current Project: Sculpting the Early Women in Fly Fishing

Current Project: Sculpting the Early Women in Fly Fishing

Featured20 comments

My current project involves researching the women who were involved with the development of fly fishing in America. Although not in the majority, women have been involved with fly fishing in America from the start. It has often been a quiet presence with long-standing contributions – from some of the first studies in the life cycles of insects in streams to the establishment of the first commercial fly tying operation in America. These were not just women who fished – they were women who pioneering very specific and significant aspects of the sport. It has been my pleasure to learn more about these women and their lives and to try to capture who they were and their stories in sculpture.

I would like to extend a special thank you to the American Museum of Fly Fishing for helping me with access to their collection and for including the beginnings of this project at their 2011-2012 exhibit. Thanks you as well to numerous individuals who are helping me locate biographical information on these women.
