Knox Kronenberg – Austin, TX
Knox began fly fishing when he was about 8 years old. His dad was the main influence for him and got him started on fly fishing. He grew up fly fishing in Colorado and along the Texas coast. When he was 13, he caught his first big trout on the Roaring Fork River in Aspen, Colorado. Up until then he didn’t understand why anyone would choose fly fishing over spin fishing, but that big fish did it. He says, ‘Since then I have not looked back!”
Knox says that “one of the coolest things about being on the Team is being able to say that you are a part of the elite group that is Team USA Youth!” As he says, he also likes the fact that the experience of being part of the Team will “open me up to new people from all kinds of backgrounds and places around America and the world!” Knox’s future plans include graduating from college, focusing on wildlife management and inventing new technology to advance fishing opportunities for the younger anglers and anglers to come.
