Tracy, CA

Fishing has been in Ben’s blood since he was a young boy. His grandfather took him
on many journeys from the Great Lakes to the Florida Keys. His father took him on summertime
trips to Eastern Idaho for remote small stream fishing and high mountain adventures. These
experiences have armed Ben with lessons that would follow him into fly fishing. Having the
California Delta in his backyard, Ben has spent many hours boating through the 1200-mile
waterway looking for Large mouth and Striped Bass. The California Delta is his fly fishing all
season playground.
In the summers of 2000-2005, Ben helped Andre Puyans with his Fly Fishing Seminars in
Eastern Idaho at Elk Creek Ranch. Ben, with the help of Andre, has worked his way to
Operations Manager.
You can catch Ben tying at the Fly Fishing Shows on the West Coast. Always working on new
patterns, If you have time, stop by and see what he is tying. Ben’s time is spent now as an
instructor for Wilderness Unlimited Fly Fishing clinics and The Becoming An Outdoor Women
Fly Fishing clinics. Both highly attended fly fishing schools.
