LOGAN TO THAILAND:
TAKING A LOCAL BRAND GLOBAL
Co-Owner of Rainy’s Flies Inc & Streamworks Co.
Ellen is a native of Burley, Idaho though she now calls Logan, Utah and Chiang Mai, Thailand her home. After graduating from BYU with a degree in Youth Leadership and Communications, Ellen completed her Master’s Degree at Utah State University in Instructional Technology – with a marketing emphasis.
After nearly 15 years of working as the Marketing Manager for the local cable TV company, Ellen joined forces with her neighbor and now business partner, Rainy Riding. They own and operate an international fly fishing company called “Rainy’s Flies” headquartered in Logan, Utah – with a manufacturing facility in Thailand. Ellen has lived in Thailand off and on for over 18 years – with a few of those years also spent in Cambodia, managing another one of their manufacturing facilities.
Ellen continues to country-hop. She spends time managing their fly-tying factory in Thailand, as well as working out of their corporate office in Logan, Utah.
