Lori-Ann Murphy, founder of Reel Women, has been chosen to receive a 2015 “Breaking Barriers” award from Orvis. Lori-Ann held the first women’s-only, fly-fishing school in 1992. After that, she started her own guiding company, along with 2 other women, located in Wyoming. Today, she and 6 female fly-fishing guides lead trips all over the world, and conduct workshops, too.
The individuals of the Reel Women team continue to do great things individually and collectively within the industry as guides, instructors, trip leaders and fishing directors. Their mission is to introduce women to the life of fly fishing and they continue to seek new opportunities to make the sport more inviting. ~Orvis
