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. In 2000, my family and I moved to Montana to begin my career as a professional fly fishing instructor and guide.

With the addition of grandchildren to the family, moving to be  closer to family was the driving force in moving to Washington state.  My husband and I now live in Birch Bay Washington where I not only fish for trout but have added salmon and steelhead and  dungeness crab to the mix.
