Hello! I’m Trista and I live in Laurel, Montana. I have 2 kids, age 6 and 8. My kids have been fishing with their dad and I since before they could walk. Being outdoors is second nature to them. So far, they really enjoy reeling fish in but have yet to master the casting part.
I’ve been married for almost 7 years to the man who introduced me to the fly fishing world. I’ve learned so much from him and his immediate family about fish, reading water and tying flies.
I’ve been fly fishing for over 6 years now and primarily fish in Montana and Northern Wyoming. I learned to tie flies about 2 years ago and really enjoy sitting down at the vice and creating non-traditional bugs.
I’m excited to have this opportunity to meet and connect with other women who share the same passion that I do.
When I’m not fishing or enjoying the outdoors, I’m a dog trainer. I’ve been working with dogs for a little over a year and it has been so rewarding. I own a German Shepherd and he goes on just about every outing possible and definitely feels the “fish on” excitement with me.
