Ben Comfort – North Carolina
Ben began fly fishing when he was 13 years old on a family vacation to Damascus, VA. He bought a cheap fly rod and taught himself how to cast and, even though he didn’t catch any fish, he loved being on the river and being outdoors. From that day onward, fly fishing has become an addiction for him. His favorite part of being on Team USA Youth is being able to represent the United States of America. He also enjoys being on a team with people who share his passion for the sport.
Looking ahead to the future, Ben sees himself attending college out west or in Florida, and majoring in fisheries biology and management. He also wants to become a guide, either for trout or redfish.
