Mary Hoagland

Software developer by day fly fisher when she can. She was first exposed to fly fishing 3 years ago and fell for the beauty, solitude and serenity of the sport. Living in the Gallatin Valley there is some world class opportunity to fish rivers, streams and mountain lakes and she has been sucking it all in. She grew up in eastern Montana fishing the warm water of the Yellowstone down there. Fishing was quite different (spinner rods with pepperoni trying to catch catfish!), but she is no stranger to conservation and respect for the land.
