Whitney Gould
Whitney Gould was born in London, England. At two years old her family moved to the east coast of the United States.  Her parents, both avid fly fisherman, introduced her to the world of fly fishing and its many possibilities.  From trout in Montana to redfish and tarpon in southern Florida, She became fascinated with fly fishing.  After graduating with a Masters from the Rhode Island School of Design, Whitney found herself in Brooklyn, New York living the life of an artist.  The lure of fishing never left and she often found herself on trains heading to the Salem New York Area with friends for trout.
In 2006 Whitney moved to the west coast to pursue a career in landscape design.  She joined the Golden Gate Casting Club where a fellow member gave her spey casting lessons. Shortly after, a friend placed a spey rod in her hands, a box of flies, and a map of the Deschutes River. She landed her first steelhead and things have never been the same.
Since then Whitney has competed at the highest levels of fly casting, winning first place in the 2009 Spey-O-Rama Women’s Division.  She has lead clinics and is becoming one of the most accomplished female casters anywhere.  Her positive attitude and unwavering excitement for spey casting and fishing is contagious.  With her ability to motivate students Whitney will likely excel at her upcoming new endeavor, guiding in Alaska.  Follow Whitney’s experiences and successes on Rogue Angels, a blog she takes part in run by the best friend anyone could ever have who wrote this for her.
