He works best with Loki at his heels.

Swift Adventure Co. Guide - Kristen Bufe

Fly Fishing Specialist

Kristen Bufe

Hey all! I’m the self proclaimed dry-fly-diva of the Midwest, and I joined Emerald Water Anglers to build the women’s fly fishing community through guided trips, retreats, classes, and schools. With 10 years of experience on the water, I enjoy exploring Washington’s fisheries, tying flies, learning to row, and meeting new fishing pals. Come say hello!

Swift Adventure Co. Guide - Eric Wilkins

Master Maker

Eric Wilkins

In late 2014, Eric left his home state of Dela-where? and drove across the country to pursue a career in sewing and design in a city he barely knew but felt strongly about. Since making it to Seattle he has worked for a few small design companies and makers growing his skills, knowledge and street cred along the way eventually landing at Swift Industries as production sticher, then production manager and now Product Manager. He is a self-proclaimed newb in the cycling scene and strives to stay rubber side down both in the saddle and in life. An amateur photographer obsessed with shooting on film, you can generally find him with some old camera slung around his neck tentatively snapping pics. Along with shredding bikes and taking shots, he has been known to work on his own design ideas and create custom backpacks and bags in a secret lair somewhere deep below the damp, dreary streets of old Seattle.

Swift Adventure Co. Guide - Hailey Brey

Fly Fishing Specialist

Hailey Brey

Monday through Thursday, Hailey Brey is a Transit / Active Transportation Planner; a corporate wonk. Friday through Sunday, she makes up for lost time, and transforms into the filthiest of troutbums. Originally from the heartland, Hailey grew up fishing for carp using a box of Wheaties and a spin-rod, biking for miles along flat cornfields, and desperately vying for the attention of busy farmdogs. Over a decade later, on a SACo. Bikefishing trip, she rediscovered how to “play” and it changed her life. While the pups still ignore her, “play” now includes pursuing trout with a fly rod and biking up PNW hills just to go down ’em. Hailey hopes that by teaching, she can help make fly fishing & its related skills (river ecology, aquatic entomology, grace, & patience…) transparent and approachable…and maybe find a few trouty-folxs will follow her down the rabbit hole of obsession.
