"Fly-Fishing = Artful Angling"

Interview with Cecilia Nasti, Passport to Texas, 2009

After cutting my teeth on the shores of Copano Bay in Rockport, Texas, I became convinced that fly-fishing was the ultimate form of fishing.  It was then I decided to stay true to this form, rather than “junk chunking” that I’d grown up with.  After college, I decided to head to the Northwest and experience the fabled waters of fresh water fly-fishing.  I fished rivers in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and Utah.  I chased native run steelhead, German browns, Rainbow trout, and the occasional carp on a fly.  It was here that I solidified my passion for fresh water fly-fishing, primarily due to the unspoiled waters in Yellowstone National Park.  Since moving back to Texas, I could think of only one place with as much breathtaking scenery and abundance of aquatic life, and that led me to the Hill Country.  Currently, I find myself chasing trout on the Guadalupe River, as well as warm water species in streams and lakes throughout the Texas Hill Country.  Whether it’s the Northwest or the Southwest, I look forward to guiding you in your next fishing adventure.
