Lori-Ann Murphy, icon of the fly-fishing world, joins El Pescador Team

In August 2009, El Pescador, Belize announced the opening of perhaps the most desirable position in the fly-fishing industry; Director of Fishing and Guest Relations of their Ambergris Caye resort. The opening of this position drew international attention from fishing and non-fishing press as being a glimmer of hope in a fairly dire employment market. Consequently, the response and number of applicants for the position was outstanding. In total nearly 150 applications were received by the recruiting agency Infinite-Fish.

A few candidates quickly rose to the top of El Pescador’s preferred list but only one candidate was selected, Lori-Ann Murphy of Reel-Women Fly Fishing Adventures. Lori-Ann has been an icon of the fly-fishing industry since 1989 when she became the first female Orvis Endorsed fly-fishing guide. In 1992 Lori-Ann co-founded Reel-Women; a very successful outfitter offering guided service, fishing schools, and fly-fishing travel primarily for female anglers. She has also acted as a member of pro-staff for numerous fly-fishing manufacturers, competed successfully in various casting competitions as well as the Fly Fishing Masters, and she has been featured in media ranging from ESPN to Martha Stewart Living.

Chris Spiro, Marketing Manager for El Pescador has stated “Lori-Ann is just the type of candidate we have been looking for. Not only is she incredibly skilled and well connected in fly-fishing, but she also possesses the abilities to take El Pescador to the next level in attracting and exceeding the expectations of both hard-core and novice anglers.”

Lefty Kreh exclaims “El Pescador could not have chosen a better person! Congratulations to both Lori-Ann and the El Pescador team.”

Lori-Ann will made the transition to island life on November 7, 2009. "I have been invited to join an incredible family at El Pescador! I look forward to extending my love for fishing from the shores of Belize. The joy is always learning something new, and taking with us what we have learned along the way. Cast to your dreams, and see you there!" “ Lori-Ann exclaims.

“Lori-Ann has done more for the fly fishing business than almost anyone. She is not only a top notch teacher of the sport, she is an extraordinary fisher lady!” Bob Clouser
