June 16, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

“At a time when women are slowly finding their way toward America’s secluded rivers and streams, fly-fishing gear in tow, Pentoney’s refusal to take offense and willingness to lend her expertise have made her an invaluable asset to Team USA’s cause. She has won casting tournaments, stunned male teammates with her proficiency and helped dismiss the stereotype that fishing is a sport dominated by men.” David Hammel in the California North County Times.
