WOT 137: Brook Trout Fishing in Classic Pocket and "Moments of Chill" with Kiki Galvin
In this episode we WadeOutThere Kiki Galvin from Falls Church, Virginia. From the time Kiki caught her first sunfish as a young girl, she was hooked. She has been fishing for over sixty years.
As a school teacher Kiki wanted to combine her love of fly fishing with teaching. After attending a guide school in Idaho, she started her own guide service, Misguided.
Kiki has volunteered extensively with numerous organizations that help others through fly fishing, including Trout Unlimited, Project Healing Waters, Casting for Recovery, and the Mayfly Project.
We discuss fly fishing opportunities surrounding the Washington D.C. area, including the Shenandoah National Park, brook trout fishing in classic pocket water, and the importance of what Kiki calls her “moments of chill.”
