You won’t ever meet another human quite like Clairey Grubbs. She wears her heart on her sleeve, she’s a go getter and would give anyone the shirt off her back. Like many of my women Fly Sisters, Clairey came into my life via social media.
Like most fly anglers, Clairey started fishing with a conventional rod as a young child. It wasn’t until she moved to Jackson WY that she decided to give fly fishing a try. Well maybe it was impressing her now husband Cody?
8 years later, marriage, motherhood and becoming more comfortable as an angler; Grubbs (with a little encouragement from Hopper) decided to co-found Lady Anglers of WyDaho (LAWD) with friend and Pioneer Anglers Fly Shop owner Christy Carlson in May 2017.
LAWD is a community of women anglers from Jackson WY to Victor & Driggs ID, Swan Valley & Irwin ID to Star Valley WY. It’s a place to grow as anglers, find fishy friends, and share experiences. LAWD Facebook
