Millie Paini grew up mountain biking and rock climbing, taking up fly fishing in her mid-twenties. A sought-after casting instructor, Millie co-owns TroutHunter on the Henry’s Fork. She resides near Last Chance, Idaho, enjoying both freshwater and saltwater fishing. 

In this episode of Anchored, we share personal updates and reminisce about past careers and experiences in the fly fishing industry. We cover the challenges and rewards of running a fly shop, the complexities of obtaining an outfitter license, and Millie’s journey as a female ambassador in the industry. The conversation also touches on the evolution of Millie’s business, the effects of climate change on local conservation efforts, and our comparison of why our daughters may prefer NOT to fish.
