The American Museum of Fly Fishing is proud to announce Rachel Finn as the Museum’s 2018 Izaak Walton Award recipient. The celebration will take place on November 1 at the Boston College Club, located on the 36th floor of 100 Federal Street at the heart of Boston’s financial district. Rachel will be joining other fly-fishing leaders who have received this award including Ed Jaworowski (2014), Tom Davidson (2015), James Prosek (2016) and Jim Klug (2017).
Rachel truly embodies Walton’s ideal of the “compleat” angler. Not only is she one of the country’s most sought-after guides for her wealth of fly fishing knowledge and skill as a teacher, people also just love spending time enjoying her laid-back style, warmth, and humor. Rachel is also a highly accomplished artist with an MFA from Yale. Her artwork reflects her passion and exuberance for the natural world. She is known as one of the most wonderful and colorful characters in the fly fishing industry.
