Caroline Emmet - England
I began fly fishing and fly tying almost twenty years ago, shortly after I met my husband, Chris Reeves. I couldn't have asked for a better way to start fishing - we were living in Chile at the time and went on two long road trips around the south of Chile and Argentina. My first flies were therefore a Woolly Bugger and a Prince Nymph. I'm ashamed to say I can't remember if I caught fish on them, but it didn't matter - I was hooked on both (not the flies, the fishing and the tying). So much so, that on the last trip, I had to be dragged out of the river by my wader shoulder straps, still trying for one more cast.
