JANUARY FAN OF THE MONTH

Hi everyone! I'm Samantha and I've been fishing my whole life. I grew up fishing with my dad, and when I moved to San Francisco for college he gifted me a membership at the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club where I started fly fishing. While I still go fishing with my dad as often as I can, I make sure to bring a fly rod along on trips and I go on a lot of trips on my own now. I've really embraced fly fishing and recently started learning to spey cast with instruction from the amazing members at GGACC. My absolute favorite place to fish from is Graeagle, because I can go to nearby lakes, backpack up into the mountains for fish, or wade a nearby river. If you want to keep up with me on all my outdoor adventures follow me on instagram @brophuss.
