Fly fishing is still relatively new for Caylin, but really plays a large role in her life now. Her fiancé, Kyle, took her fly fishing for the very first time in the summer of 2015. When she first started fly fishing, Kyle showed a lot of patience with me, and he still loved Caylin even after she lost all of his flies in the trees!
It wasn’t until summer 2019 that Caylin had her breakthrough with fly fishing. Prior, fly fishing was a hobby that she participated in casually. Now, it has turned into an enthusiasm where she finds herself going out almost everyday in the summer. While Kyle has been Caylin’s support and guide (literally!) all this time, she feels that she has finally gained more confidence in herself and my her casting skills to fly-fish more independently. As her confidence has grown in the sport, so has her passion.
Caylin says, “I see and love all the female anglers that are a part of this sport who are advocating to get more women into it. It is my hope that my story of overcoming my initial lack of confidence is something that can inspire other ladies who are new to the sport. We all have to start somewhere!”
