Sara Jarrell

When Sara was a young girl, she was introduced to fishing by her grandmothers, around the age of 6 or so. It was a special activity that she shared with both of them–one lived in Montana and one in Alabama–so she got a taste for different types and environments for fishing at a young age. Then when visits to see grandma started to give way to college and jobs, Sara found herself fishing less and less. After her grandmothers passed away, she reminisced about all the fishing they had done together and decided it was time to create more fishing memories on her own. So she picked up fly fishing at the ripe old age of 31 and hasn’t stopped practicing casting yet.
