Mayfly Sales Co. Welcomes Newest Independent Sales Representative Elaine Huskey
Elaine is a seasoned angler with 20 years of experience in the fly-fishing Industry. Her experience and passion for fly-fishing makes her a perfect sales team addition for Miss Mayfly®.
All of us at Miss Mayfly® and Ranger Outdoors, LLC are excited to see what the future holds for Elaine as she embarks on this new journey and joins along-side of us to carry our mission forward to provide appropriate and accessible gear solutions for women.
Elaine began fly fishing in 2002. After sitting on the riverbank, watching someone fly fish, she thought “I can do that!" She then signed up for a weekend fly-fishing class where she learned all the basics to begin her fly-fishing journey. It was during this weekend class that she landed her first trout on a fly rod.
“I practiced a lot on the river by reading a How to Cast article and looking at the pictures in a fly-fishing magazine. I started guiding in 2003 and fell in love with teaching people how to fish and loved the camaraderie fly-fishing brought me. In 2018 I started tying flies sitting at a friend’s kitchen table tying up mop flies and San Juan worms. Soon after, I started tying at shows and doing fly tying demonstrations and teaching kids to tie the same bugs I learned on. That same year, I learned how to build a fly rod through Project Healing Waters and enrolled as a volunteer for the organization, to mentor disabled veterans and disabled active military service personnel. I later obtained employment at SaraBella Fishing that enabled me to utilize my rod building experience."
In February 2022, Elaine moved from Colorado and headed to the big sky country- Montana. She lives with her husband in a 40-foot 5th wheel toy hauler and spends her days traveling around Montana and Wyoming enjoying fishing, hiking, and exploring with their two dogs Madison and Benjamin. Elaine has fallen in love with Montana and is living a life that many of us can only dream of.
“I am excited to represent Miss Mayfly® as the Montana and Wyoming Sales Rep. I cannot wait to meet new friends and get to know this area. Reach out and say Hi, let me know your favorite place to fish and you never know I just might show up and go fishing with you”!
