Max Erickson – Pasadena, MD
Max began fly fishing around the age of four. He remembers the nights spent watching his grand father tie flies and the interest that it sparked. Later he made his first trip to the Gunpowder River where he caught his first trout on a fly. As he says, “I was hooked!” He did not start competing until 2014, competing in the TroutLegend sponsored competition on the Gunpowder.
Max says that the best part of being on Team USA Youth is ” having the pride and joy to represent my country in a sport I truly love. My favorite thing about Team USA Youth is that we are like a family, we all care about each other and share information without hesitation.”
When asked where he sees himself in the next five years, he says that he plans on attending college and begin his path towards a successful future, He would like to attend college out West in order to experience life on the other side of the country and to take advantage of the “awesome fishing.” He plans on majoring in either Fisheries Biology or Environmental Science and minoring in business.
