Dandy Reiner grew up among the rivers and streams of Montana. She started 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. Hatchfinders Fly Shop is a full service shop that offers guided trips and 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.
