Ryder Sutton – North Carolina
Ryder began his interest in fly fishing when he went on a guide for the first time the year before he started fishing. He liked it very much and decided to learn from a few local people and friends. He attended his first Team USA Youth clinic and has tried to be at as many as he could ever since. Soon he discovered the competitions and it was, as he says, ” a whole different game!” Ryder likes the way competition fishing “makes you think and use the water to the best of your abilities”
Ryder says that what he likes best about being on Team USA Youth is that he is able to “represent the country as being one of the few on Team USA Youth.” As he looks to the future, he plans on college and hopefully guiding and teaching other people to fly fish.
