Island Park, ID
Karlie grew up with a fly rod in one hand and a fly tying vise in the other. She spent her summers in Last Chance, Idaho, where her family has fished the Henry's Fork for multiple generations. Over the years, Karlie has traveled from the Rockies to the Pacific northwest to Patagonia as part of her ongoing search for trout, salmon and steelhead. A tireless advocate for fisheries conservation and watershed protection, a passionate angler and educator, and a veteran guide with extensive experience leading fly fishing schools and hosted travel, she now works for TroutHunter on the river that started it all - the Henry’s Fork. Karlie is on the Hardy Rods & Reels pro staff.
