Christine Hill, a campaign director with Sierra Club, fell in love with fly fishing on a trip to Alaska a few years back. She spends her summers in Alaska now, fishing for the big salmon that return to the state’s rivers each year. The rest of the year she works in DC, lobbying for conservation causes. She sought out women to fish with, eventually joining a women’s fishing group and making close friends. She also connected with fellow anglers through the Brown Folks Fishing social media feeds. Her community has expanded through fishing, as it does for so many. Check out her story, here.
