Heidi WildService Assistant
Heidi was born in Williams Lake, Canada and moved to the United States as a child. She spent her youth fishing all along the rivers of America’s North West. When Heidi was 18, she joined the United States Air Force (USAF). The USAF is what ultimately brought her to Alaska after being stationed in the Middle East. She is a female Veteran of the United States Armed Forces. In her career, Heidi served with some of the most remarkable men and women that our nation has the privilege to call the United States Military. Most say that Heidi is full of energy but the truth of the matter is… she just loves to fish. She loves all aspects of fishing, from tying her own flies to building the best fly rods at affordable prices for anglers. Heidi holds her Coast Guard Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel (OUPV or a.k.a Six Pack) license and is First Aid and CPR certified. She is a licensed fishing guide in the State of Alaska, and she owns and operates Wild On the Fly – Custom Fresh and Saltwater Fly rods. Heidi graduated the Sweetwater Travel Guide School. She is proficient in jet boat operations, streamside jet boat maintenance, drift boat operations, fly tying, fly casting, and all aspects of freshwater fly fishing. She has several hours of training and certification in each of these fields of study. When Heidi moved to Alaska, it didn’t take long before she began to extensively explore the South Peninsula and discover that some of the most die-hard anglers reside in the Last Frontier. If you’re wondering why Alaska is such a remarkable fishing destination, all it takes is one trip to the Last Frontier to understand. Alaska not only provides the largest outdoor playground in the United States, it is also a state whose residents abound with passion for the great outdoors. Among them are also some of the most compassionate, caring, and considerate people and organizations. Heidi is honored and humbled to be a small part of two such organizations, Project Healing Waters and Women Listen.
