Amy Hazel to appear at The Sandy River Spey Clave
Hazel lives and works on the Deschutes
River in Maupin, Oregon
where she has been teaching Spey casting and guiding steelhead and trout
anglers since 1999. Her love of fishing and the outdoors began in her
where she first began fly fishing in 1986. Amy spent four years at
Middlebury College in Vermont
where she explored the creeks and rivers of the Green Mountain state with her fly rod. After
graduating from Middlebury with a degree in economics, Amy moved to Wyoming to work as a
wrangler on a dude ranch. While wrangling, she led pack trips and taught fly
fishing in the Bighorn Mountains. From
1997-1998 Amy traveled around the world by herself with several fly rods and
a backpack, fishing 19 different countries in a two-year period. During that
epic journey, Amy hooked many different species of fish on the fly including
Rainbows in New Zealand,
Brown Trout in India,
Tigerfish in Africa, Atlantic Salmon in Ireland, and Sea Run Brown Trout in Argentina.
Amy and her husband, John, have been Spey casting partners for twelve years.
During that time they have been featured on several Spey casting
instructional DVDs as well as in the acclaimed fly fishing film, Drift.
Together they own and operate a guide service and fly shop,
Angler, in Maupin. When she takes a break from guiding and retail, Amy
enjoys filling her passport with stamps from exotic fishing destinations,
tying flies, upland bird hunting, and romping around their ranch on the
Deschutes with her horses and dogs.
