Heather Hodson Founder of United Women on the Fly [ ].  Heather, @northwestflygirl, is an expert at making anglers (especially women) feel comfortable and becoming a part of the fly fishing community.  Sometimes referred to as the “Middle Woman,” Heather volunteers her energy and time to connect women, help start women programs or enable anglers to become more confident on the water. Heather has dedicated her time to educate and inspire others. She is currently studying for her Casting Instructor Certification with Fly Fishers International and has been teaching Fly Fishing since 2014.  She’s also no stranger to being behind the camera.  Heather started taking photos as a rodeo photographer with her 35mm.  With over some 100 days on the water this year, it’s always a tossup between catching fish or being creative behind the camera. Her passion for conservation, getting anyone involved in fly fishing and enthusiasm to think outside the box is infectious. Photo Silverbow Fly Shop.

The Mission:

United Women on the Fly is committed to inclusive and respectful practices as we strive to welcome more anglers (specifically women) from all backgrounds into the sport of fly fishing.  Gender parity on the water is just not enough!
