J. Michelle Swope, owner of Oly Women on the Fly Guide Service, is a lifelong Washington resident. Born on the north end of the Hood Canal, the Olympic Mountain streams were where she learned to fish.

These days, she can be found chasing Sea Run Cutthroat in the Hood Canal and South Puget Sound. She will talk with us about growing up on the Olympic Peninsula, her first love (Steelhead), her work with United Women on the Fly (with more than 16K participants now), and ways she has worked to welcome more diversity into her classes, clubs, and boat!
