I love rivers, especially the gin-clear waters of New Zealand.

Hannah Perkins

Hannah started fly fishing when she was around five years old. It was something her entire family did. If the family vacation wasn’t a fishing vacation, they were hunting, so it was either learn or do nothing–and she’s not a do-nothing type of girl. When she went to college in Montana, she began to develop her own personal relationship with fishing, learning how to do it completely on her own–from finding out where to go to tying her own flies and learning to row a boat. Today it is a hobby that she has designed her life around. She gets out on the water any chance I get, and most of her own vacations are now fishing and hunting vacations.
