THE AMBASSADOR TEAM

They’re fly fishing world-record holders, licensed guides, outdoor educators, wounded veterans, film makers and broadcast producers.  But most importantly, they’re amazing.  Each and every one of them.  The women that comprise the Able Women Ambassador Team – despite the differences in their backgrounds – all share a common understanding of how enriching fly fishing can be.  For some, its been a life saver.  For others, its shaped a career.  But no matter the particular role fly fishing has played in their lives, each of the founding members of the Able Women Team are a living testament to the positive role fly fishing can play in a woman’s life.  And they are all equally passionate about sharing that with women throughout the U.S., and even the world.  Please check back soon to view upcoming events at which these very capable women will appear.
