“She’s from WISCONSIN. She’s just being NICE.”
“If I’m fly fishing and I don’t catch any fish, it’s no big deal. In fact, half the time I just go out there with a rod so people don’t think I’m crazy. If I told my friends: “I’m going to go stand in a river in rubber pants for three hours just to be outside.” ... they’d think I was nuts. But with the rod, totally socially acceptable.”
- Heidi, 5th Generation, Steven's Point WI
Heidi is full of laughs. She’s infectiously vivacious, and had us smiling in no time flat. Heidi is a photographer in her hometown of Steven’s Point. She’s also a nature lover on the board of Trout Unlimited, where she is working to get more women into the sport. Or working to get more people out in rivers in rubber pants. (She says that’s really the most important part). We’d be game to join her, any day.
“I cherish those times up north as a kid where we’d just jump in the lake in our clothes. We were so excited to get out there. I want to take my [future] kids and throw them in a lake, or in a kayak, or wade in a stream, and have them be able to enjoy all the same things that I enjoy out there."
