Leslie has fished her entire life and discovered the thrill of fly fishing in 1984. She has spent many days guiding, fishing, and rowing here on our local rivers both before and after graduating from the Reel Women Guide School in 2001. Leslie is a Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF) Certified Casting Instructor.
She is true steward of conservation for the rivers in East Idaho and Western Wyoming.
Leslie is an active member in the Idaho Falls Trout Unlimited Chapter – The Snake River Cutthroats, and each spring she leads the women’s program at Eastern Idaho’s Fly-fishing Expo. Her passion to share entomology, reading water, casting techniques and put you on fish is in her blood. When Leslie’s not on the river searching for trout, she can be found working on her freelance film and video business, which has included videos for RIO Products, and instructional fly fishing and tying. Leslie loves to share her passion of fly fishing the waters of eastern Idaho.
