I would be remiss if I didn’t recognize my husband, Florian, as my number one sponsor. We first fished together in the Uintahs in Utah in 2000, and I never took a smile off my face the entire time I was fishing. Although there was a bit of a hiatus between that first day I went fly fishing and when I took it up seriously three years ago, it was Florian who encouraged me and was remarkably patient as I began my journey to understand this incredible art. The standard rule that you never teach your wife to fish (or play golf) did not ring true for us. He has been a great teacher.

  1. Shelley, this is wonderful. When Emma comes over on Boxing Day I will show it to her. Her and her partner Phil are so into fishing, she’ll love it. Emma is just getting into fly fishing and makes lots of her own flies – they also fish for carp. What a lovely relaxing hobby you have both found.

  2. I love this website and am so impressed by the natural grace with which you, Shelley, are pursuing your dream. Fearless, no, courageous yes. Sense of daring, sense of humor. I look forward to following your adventure…thanks for sharing it here!
