Rainy Riding learned how to fish when she was five years old from her grandfather. Eventually, she'd learn to tie flies and help teach fly tying at Utah State University and go on to found Rainy's Premium Flies in 1971, in Wellsville, Utah.

Rainy eventually partnered with Ellen Clark and went on to build a global fly tying business that is thriving over 50 years later.
