Cam Chioffi – Weston, MA.
Taught by his dad and grandfather, Cam has loved fishing since he was two. At age eight, he was introduced to fly fishing and has since become a student of the sport, reading and observing every bit of information available. The first competitive clinic Cam attended was in May 2010 in Pennsylvania. During that clinic, he learned the basics of competition he uses today. After that clinic, he was hooked and attended several more around the country with the aim of learning and improving his technique. In 2013 Cam won the individual gold and team gold at the Youth World Fly Fishing Championships in Ireland. In other recent competitions, he placed 4th (Youth Nationals 2012 in NC) and 7th (America Cup 2012 in CO). Cam lives in the Boston area and is a member of Greater Boston Trout Unlimited. His local fishing is done on rivers like the Swift, Farmington, and the Assabet. He also enjoys fishing Central Vermont for native trout, and Cape Cod for stripers and bluefish. Cam is a junior at Weston High School where he plays varsity ice hockey and continues to teach fly fishing to his friends and in his community.
