fly fishing as a child along with her sister, under the tutelage of their
father Dean Reiner, a long time Montana Outfitter. After completing her
education at Montana State University, earning a degree in English
Literature, she went to work in her father's fly shop in Livingston,
Montana. Dandy now owns and runs the business, her father still tying flies
for her. She takes pride in owning one of the few woman owned fly shops.

they tie every fly they sell. Dandy ties Dean's innovative fly patterns and
has studied under the Japanese master fly tyer, Koichi Kawai. When she
isn't tying or fly fishing, she is putting her college degree to use by
composing poems about tying or fly fishing. More information about Dandy
