There’s something magical about holding a trout with a tail about the size of your hand. #flyfishing Courtesy of @therollingjranch

An incredible weekend of fly fishing brought to you by @therollingjranch.⁣ ⁣ The fishing was phenomenal and the views were absolutely breathtaking, but what made this a truly once in a lifetime trip were the friendships I made with Mike, Brice and Tim from @therollingjranch and @coloradoflyfishingguides.⁣ ⁣ This weekend was so special in so many ways and brings me back to the reason #whyiflyfish.

There answer is “No”, it isn’t easy. ⠀ ⠀ I still feel it when I’m introduced as “a great angler” to a group or individual who doesn’t know me. I see the doubt set in and the reluctancy to take me seriously. And I get it. ⠀ ⠀ It’s like having to adjust to a new school every other weekend. Feeling the weight of censorious eyes on you. Starting over, re-introducing and re-proving yourself each time you get on the water. And though I’ve always enjoyed a challenge, over the years these experiences have culminated into a mountain that doesn’t get any easier to climb.⠀ ⠀ But in truth, I believe that’s why I’m here, and in some way, shape or form, I can make a difference if I keep pushing. ⠀ ⠀ I hope I shed some light on some of the aspects of these struggles, without conveying the wrong tone. With experiences, both good and bad, comes growth and wisdom. ⠀ ⠀ We all have individual conflicts we face whether they be in our hobbies or other areas of our lives. It’s easy to fall victim to the things that attempt to bind me to the stereotype of being a female in the outdoors world, but I know well that that isn’t my destiny. ⠀ ⠀ This is what I was born to do, and I’ll continue to push the worlds perceived limitations of what I’m capable of. ⠀ ⠀ I’m so thankful for the opportunity to have a voice. This has been one of the biggest years for me, and it’s only the beginning. ⠀ ⠀ #hangon ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
