Lynae Axelson - Damsel Fly Fishing Image

“Smart Beautiful is SOMETHING that gives you confidence to go out and try fly fishing for the first time or even just the confidence to just be you and it is SOMEONE who exudes grace, empathy, laughter, and love.”

Lynae is a small business owner who makes and sells women’s fly fishing accessories. Her hope is to create not just a brand but a community where women can be comfortable and encouraged in their outdoor pursuits.

Kaitlin Barnhart - Mammaflybox & The Mayfly Project
Kaitlin Barnhart - Mammaflybox & The Mayfly Project Image

Kaitlin grew up in Northern California and Northern Idaho. She has a BA in Psychology from Pacific Lutheran University, works for Integrated Interventions and writes for various magazines. Kaitlin is known in the fly fishing community as ‘Mamaflybox’, blogging about her attempts to mix parenting (her three children) with her fly fishing adventures. She feels blessed to be a part of some wonderful organizations, but most recently she has helped develop The Mayfly Project, which uses fly fishing as a catalyst for mentoring youth in foster care.

“Smart Beautiful to me means women getting out on an adventure, regardless of their skill level or what phase of life they are in, but determined to experience the excitement of life outdoors or through fly fishing. That is why I love the river-experience- it isn’t about looking a certain way or worrying about fitting into a specific role; you turn into only a part of nature, using your brain to trick fish. You become smart when you learn to put off the things of the world you think you need to be, and are able to just be, which is why so many of us are addicted to fly fishing, because of the moments of pure serenity. Beauty is much deeper than what we have on or what we look like- to me beauty is found when you learn to enjoy the simple things, like a river, or a mayfly that has landed on your fly rod, or the smile you received from your your daughter when she caught her first fish on her fly rod. Every single woman is Smart Beautiful, but fly gals have that special twinkle in their eye; they know how to enjoy the freedom of life and they can always find an fishy adventure.”

Courtney was born in Indiana and spent most of her years growing up in Vail, Colorado.

Currently, she is has a “corporate” job…whenever she has the chance, Courtney presents/teaches at lady angler events and spends time on the water.

Katie has been a dedicated fly fishing guide in Vail now for nine years and to her knowledge has been the only female guide at her company during her employment. Her hope is that more women will get involved in the sport while having a fun and positive experience realizing that there is no wrong way to do something.

“Smart and beautiful: this combination is telling me that you don’t have to sacrifice beauty for function. It’s really the essence of what every consumer is looking for.”

Sara George - Scenic River Tours
Sara George - Scenic River Tours Image

Sara is fairly new to the sport of fly fishing but instantly fell in love with it and began fishing every day catching big fish. She experienced a bit of a learning curve while learning to fly fish by men and thinks that if as more women teach/guide women in the sport, the experience will improve for women.

“To me smart beautiful means a lot of things, but most importantly to be empowering and supportive.”

“Smart Beautiful”, to me, describes something that shows knowledge, confidence, and passion all-in-one.

Jesse moved cross-country to British Columbia and is always trying to learn how to do things on her own. She is driven, and she believes every woman can teach herself a little about fly-fishing. Jesse wants to help SaraBella connect with female anglers throughout Canada.

Jen Ripple - DUN Magazine
Jen Ripple - DUN Magazine Image

Jen created the international women’s fly fishing magazine, DUN magazine, and has become a home base for women in the sport. Her life goal is to empower women while also including our male allies in the journey.

“Apart from intelligence, smart means self-confidence to me. It means that regardless of where you have come from, you are going somewhere. As far as beautiful, I believe that every woman is beautiful in their own way. While outward appearances are usually equated with beauty, they mean nothing on the water.”

Amy is a well traveled mother who also sees the relation between yoga and fly fishing. She started “Yoga On The Fly” in Montana and is striving to get more women interested in fly fishing.

“Beauty and brains are strong forces. Creating custom rods for women shows that they can look beautiful while partaking in a predominantly male sport, all the while outsmarting the fish as well as most men.”
