J. Michelle Swope

J. Michelle Swope has been fishing since she can remember, and started fly fishing at 7 yrs old.  An experienced angler, she grew up fishing for Steelhead on the Olympic Peninsula. This soon morphed into fishing for other species, including tuna and dorado off of Baja, bonefish and sailfish in the Yucatán, and sea-run cutthroat in her backyard of South Puget Sound. She has over 25 years guiding experience and will fish for anything, with anything. J. Michelle combines her innate sense of curiosity and adventure with her deep love of fish and the waters they inhabit. Any trip with her will include conversations and examples of conservation efforts happening to improve habitat of the fish and the cultures that support them. When not fishing, she is either teaching fishing, fly tying, or planning her next adventure.
