Owen Welch -Lewistown, PA.
Owen started fly fishing at the age of eight through a local parks and recreational summer camp program. He then improved his skills by spending time around some of his local Trout Unlimited members. Since then he has worked on developing his skill by practicing on many lakes and streams within Pennsylvania. Owen’s favorite part of being on Team USA is the friendships he makes wherever he goes. He says, “The camaraderie that you gain from attending the different clinics, practices, and completions is great!” In his next five years, Owen foresees himself finishing out his schooling at college in
biological engineering with a minor in fisheries science. Along with his schooling, he plans to begin working towards becoming a member of the adult Team USA and work as a part time fly fishing guide.
