Aaron Stiny grew up in Northern California working in and managing a fly shop. After finishing his degree in Kinesiology from Chico State, he traded in steelhead and striper fishing for a chance to move to Idaho working in marketing and sales in the fly-fishing industry. He quickly fell in love with trout country and spends his free time fishing, skiing, and chasing his dog around the streams and mountains surrounding home in Victor, ID. After a stint in the natural food business he’s excited to be back in the fly-fishing industry working closely with dealers.
“”I’m really excited to be working with the dealers in the Northern Rockies. There are some incredible dealers and destinations here and I can’t wait to help them get the most out of their partnerships with Umpqua.”
