Fly fishing the Deschutes River Salmon Hatch with Callie Freeman, PhD

Callie Freeman PhD, is an avid fly angler, passionate fly fishing instructor and professional entomologist. Callie, a native of Lexington, KY, received her master’s degree in Entomology from the University of Kentucky in 2005 followed by her doctorate degree five years later from North Carolina State University. Callie is the owner and principal scientist of Parker BioLabs LLC, a consulting company specializing in contract research and environmental consulting for the golf course industry. Callie is the co-editor of the Handbook of Turfgrass Insects and recipient of several prestigious awards related to teaching and research including the Watson Fellowship, Preparing the Professoriate Fellowship and Turfgrass Eagle Award.

Callie’s love for fly fishing and conservation have led her to volunteer her time with several organizations including co-leading PDX Women on the Fly, an affiliate group of Trout Unlimited, located in Portland, Oregon. Callie also served on the executive board of directors for the Coastal Conservation Association of North Carolina. During her time there Callie served as communications co-chair, co-director of the Fishing for the Future kid’s fishing tournaments and led the Crystal Coast Chapter for several years of fundraising banquets. Callie also volunteered with the East Kentucky Ladies chapter of Ducks Unlimited.

Callie is currently a Fly Fishers International Casting Instructor Candidate and plans to take her CI exam in the fall of 2023. She has begun teaching under Callie Freeman Fly Fishing and hopes to continue to ease new members into the sport and aid seasoned anglers in improving their skill level.

Callie lives in coastal NC with her husband, Lieutenant Colonel Heath Freeman, United States Marine Corps, daughter and artist extraordinaire Emerson, son and professional gamer Everett and food-obsessed Labrador Benelli Rose.
