Jen Ripple grew up on a small private lake in Wisconsin. Spending all of her formative years diving the waters of the Midwest, it is no wonder she bleeds water. Currently, she is the Principal of Fly Squared Media, a company that publishes a number of magazines in the outdoor industry with an emphasis on the fly fishing lifestyle. She is most known as the Owner and Editor-in-Chief of DUN Magazine, the international women’s fly fishing magazine. In addition to these positions, she is a member of the Board of Directors for Fly Fishers International. When not on the water, she spends her time empowering women in fly fishing through speaking engagements nationwide and teaching fly casting and fly tying clinics. She is an avid conservationist, who devotes her free time to conservation efforts through nonprofits. A sounding board for women in this currently male-dominated sport, Jen has created a home base for women worldwide to connect and engage in the art of fly fishing.
