Cheeky Welcomes Abbie Schuster and Tessa Shetter to Cheeky Ambassador Team
February 8, 2017
Arlington, MA - Cheeky is excited to announce the addition of Abbie Schuster and Tessa Shetter to the Cheeky Ambassador Team for 2017.
Abbie Schuster is the founder, owner and head guide of Kismet Outfitters, a fly fishing outfitter that services Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. A New England native, Abbie is something of a bluefish whisperer - recently publishing an article about how to catch these menacing predators on a fly rod. She grew up fly fishing the Long Island Sound, and as a guide, Abbie specializes in inshore saltwater fly fishing trips for blues, striped bass and false albacore, as well as freshwater trout excursions in New England's rural rivers and streams. Prior to founding Kismet Outfitters, Abbie worked as a professional guide in Montana, Alaska and Washington. She is committed to making the life-long sport of fly fishing an accessible activity for anglers of all ages and skill levels. As part of Kismet Outfitters, she organizes programs, trips and fly fishing lessons designed to introduce women to the sport.
Tessa Shetter picked up fly fishing at the age of 16 and hasn’t looked back since. Born and raised in Alaska, Tessa and long-time fishing partner Kory Robbins generate some of the best fly fishing media on the web. Their company, KorVisuals, produces world-class fly fishing photography and film, much of which documents the two's adventures fishing throughout Southern Alaska. Tessa features much of this content on her ever-growing Instagram account. She also publishes articles about fly fishing and speaks at seminars, sharing her expertise with anglers of all skill levels. A current student at University of Alaska, Tessa hopes to become a fly fishing guide upon graduation. Tessa is also an Ambassador for Cheeky's sister brand, Wingo Belts.
Abbie and Tessa join 10 other Cheeky Ambassadors worldwide. Cheeky Ambassadors embody the Company’s core values and represent the essence of what Cheeky is all about. They’re humanitarians, field-testers, pioneers and extraordinary visionaries on and off the water. Some are passionate conservationists and others are the ultimate thrill-seekers. Cheeky Ambassadors continuously inspire and excite those around them. They live the lifestyle Cheeky represents and are driving the sport to new levels. Cheeky is proud to welcome Abbie and Tessa to the Ambassador Team!
