Three time world champion spey caster, accomplished guide, conservationist, upland bird hunter, skier and mother, Mia Sheppard, grew up in Tennessee, chasing trout and hiking the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. Fly fishing caught her attention in 1996 and in 2001, Marty Sheppard, her husband, introduced her to spey casting, and connecting with steelhead. In 2003 they purchased Little Creek Outfitters, a outfitter deep rooted in fly-fishing since 1984, guiding anglers into steelhead, trout, and smallmouth bass on Oregon Rivers. Committed to conservation, she works for the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, is a river steward for Native Fish Society, the conservation chair for IWFF and supporter of Deschutes River Alliance, Trout Unlimited, and Casting For Recovery. Mia has contributed to the books; Wild Steelhead: the Lure and Lore of a Pacific Northwest Icon and 50 Best Places Fly Fishing the Northwest. She is an ambassador for Simms Fishing Product and Field Advisor for Winston Rods. When she isn’t fishing she can be found chasing upland birds or skiing Mt Hood with family and friends.
