5280 Guide 

Courtney was born in Indiana and spent her younger years split between Indiana and Vail, CO. She had fishing in her life from an early age as a result of her brother’s interest and passion for fly fishing. She started fly fishing, in a hardcore way, as a young adult when she fell in love with it as a way to spend time outside in the fresh mountain air and away from her stressful corporate job. As she continued in the lifestyle, she eventually decided she wanted to make her passion, her life and opted to separate from corporate healthcare. Since she has fully immersed herself in the industry and the lifestyle full-time.
Her background as physical therapist and a corporate executive allows her to understand and execute a top notch fly fishing experience for her clients. She can fully recognize a client’s varying goals for a day out on the water from a first time angler to the weekend warrior to the experienced individual and help them raise their game to the next level. She is driven by learning, teaching and service.

ESSENTIAL GEAR

Smith ChromaPops – Help spot the fish and protect me
Weight – Such a small thing can make such a difference in a successful day on the water
Rod Vault – Love being able to pre-rig for waters I know and get fishing that much quicker

ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE YOUR FISHING STYLE

Experience – It’s all about the experience for me; being outdoors, on the water and in the mountains…
