Hey! So Glad You're Here.

Kayla was Born and raised in a small farm town in Minnesota. She is the second oldest of 7 girls (yes that is right all girls!) Her love for the outdoors, fishing and hunting started at a young age when she would tag along with her father all over Minnesota, which resulted in them becoming fishing and hunting buddies. She finally ventured out of her home state in 2015 and explored some new waters and lands and moved to Portland OR. When not on the water you can find Kayla enjoying one of her other hobbies she enjoys in life - Playing Music (ukulele and Banjo), painting, embroidery, and riding her dirt bike through the fern filled forests in the PNW.
 

Kayla Lockhart first discovered fly fishing to help cope with her depression and anxiety from a difficult upbringing. Today fly fishing has taken her exotic places in pursuit of some of the most exotic species of fish. In between these trips, Kayla assists with conservation efforts, and organizations like the fly fishing collaborative and the mayfly project.
