Priscilla (she/her) is based in Denver, CO. Hailing from the sunny shores of Miami, FL, her heart has always been captivated by the allure of the water. Several years ago, Priscilla made the move to Colorado, where she discovered the art of fly fishing. It was there that she learned to navigate the rhythm of the rivers and developed a profound love for this outdoor pursuit. Fly fishing became not just a hobby but a way of life, allowing her to connect with nature in ways she hadn’t imagined.

Among the various styles of fishing, saltwater fly fishing holds a special place in Priscilla’s heart. The thrill of the open sea and the challenge it presents create an exhilarating experience that she cherishes.

One of the most rewarding aspects of Priscilla’s journey has been the friendships forged within the UWOTF community. The camaraderie shared among fellow anglers has enriched her life, making each fishing expedition more than just a pursuit of fish but a celebration of connection and shared passion.

As she casts her line into the future, Priscilla looks forward to continuing her exploration of the world of fly fishing and fostering connections within the incredible community that surrounds it.
