Fishing Manager: Lesley Allen
Lesley is a native of West Tennessee and has been enjoying the outdoors all her life. She began fly fishing in ‘99 when she and her husband joined Mid-South Fly Fishers in Memphis. She immediately fell in love with the sport learning to tie her own flies and targeting both trout and multiple warm water species. Lesley joined Orvis in October 2016 and has played an instrumental role in getting the 50/50 On the Water initiative to Memphis. Lesley is excited to continue to expand the fly fishing community in Memphis, while helping both men and women develop a passion for being on the water and building lasting relationships. When not at work you will find her and her husband tying flies, fishing and kayaking throughout the mid-South.
