Riley Nelson - Destination Manager - Rockies

Riley specializes in trout fisheries throughout the Rockies. An enthusiastic angler for all species, she grew up exploring the back roads of the rockies, hitting as many trails and rivers as time allowed. Prior to joining the Fly Water Travel team she spent time guiding in Northeast Utah and worked as an analyst in the outdoor industry. Riley's passion for fly fishing started young and hit its stride during her time in graduate school at the University of Montana. With a background in biogeography and a love for the sciences, Riley also enjoys the never-ending education that comes with fly fishing. When she isn't on the river she's exploring new trails, learning about fly tying, and obsessing over maps for new locations to explore.
