About Molly Semenik
While growing up in Michigan, I had plenty of water to practice my fly fishing skills. The Pere Marquette, Au Sable, and Jordan rivers were favorites. At the age of fourteen, my father gave me his Orvis Bamboo fly rod and that was the beginning of my venture into the world of fly fishing. In 1979, I moved west to Utah and spent the next twenty years fly fishing not only Utah’s famous Green and Provo rivers but also as far south as Lee’s Ferry in Arizona. And even farther south, I began fly fishing in the salt.
Now my husband and I live in Livingston, Montana. I am surrounded by two mountain ranges with the longest of the free flowing rivers, the Yellowstone, cutting through the valley floor. I also enjoy our nearby world renown spring creeks.
