My current goal is to take an international fly fishing trip every year, I just went to Belize in November and am headed to Christmas Island in May! I really aspire to be a roldemodel for other women who are interested in fly fishing and I hope to inspire them to get out there!

Brook Ferro - Born and raised in Pocatello, Idaho. I was raised on some of the best fly fishing waters in the country. My father started me at a very young age of 3 and the itch has never stopped. Throughout the years I have traveled around Idaho fly fishing small mountain streams where the bull trout are to the grassy plains of still water fly fishing for bass. Every moment I get when I'm not hunting you can find me fly fishing all over the Gem state. In my down time I'm sitting behind the vise tying flies. Hoping to motivate more ladies on the water in 2019 as I'm building up the Idaho Lady Anglers group for women all over.

I spent a week learning and fishing along the banks of the Yellow Breeches for a summer camp and was hooked from there. Fly fishing, has brought me to places and introduced me to people I’ve never thought possible. If there’s a body of water from New York to Pennsylvania, chances are you can find me fishing it. My main focus is fishing for trophy size trout and I’ve gone to some extreme measures to catch them. To further my passion, I work at the Douglaston Salmon Run in Pulaski, NY. When I’m not working or fishing I’m a full time student studying Aquatic and Fisheries Science at SUNY-ESF. Come summer I return to my home waters on the New Jersey, Pennsylvania border and split my time either religiously fishing or working at Artifice Fly Co.
