About our guest angler Angela: I have been fly fishing the world since 1999 discovering hidden destinations to fish. Although my passion is fishing the saltwater flats, I also enjoy the tranquility of fishing mountain streams. Overall, it does not matter where you fish, as long as you are out enjoying nature!
