West Virginia woman breaks three fly fishing records


For Michelle Fleming fly fishing is not just a hobby, it is a passion.

Her husband, Curtis Fleming, not only got her involved in the sport but also hosted Fly Rod Chronicles with Curtis Fleming.

They recently decided to take a fishing trip in Alaska. While there Michelle broke three fly fishing records. She earned the international Game Fishing Association titles for arctic grayling, Dolly Varden trout, and pink salmon.

She dedicated her records to her late sister and to Sonya Moore-Coats, who was Fleming’s office manager and passed away before the Alaska trip.

“The sun was shining, there was barely any clouds in the sky. I just knew that in their honor, I was catching it for them,” she said, according to WDTV

This is not the first time that the Flemings broke records. Back in 2016, they scored five IGFA records while fishing in Anchorage
