Julie Sprinkle

 

Julie Sprinkle is a naturalist at heart, her approach to fly fishing focuses on the total outdoor experience. A day on the river with her might include a brief lesson on the region's wildflowers, history or geology to enhance your fishing experience.

 

Julie is the clothing guru for Angler's Covey, an active volunteer for the Pikes Peak Women Anglers and assists with the women's classes and Women's Camp -- she also spends an inordinate amount of time tying flies to replace the ones her husband has pilfered from her fly boxes. She especially enjoys stalking small, wild trout with her 2-weight in obscure, high-country streams.

 

Julie's an award-winning botanical artist, specializing in intimate portraits of plants, fishing flies, and other intriguing objects of the natural world. Her other passions include rock climbing, telemark skiing, big-game hunting, and hiking with her very fetching Springer Spaniel -- activities that all serve to inform and inspire her art. Examples of Julie's artwork can be found in the card rack at Angler's Covey and at her web site: www.JulieSprinkle.com.

 

"Julie and Greg provided excellent guiding service and a great time for four of us. They have excellent teaching skills and could not have been more cordial. The lunch was 6 Stars out of 5. Thanks again."
