Ben started his fly fishing journey on the River Kennet with his grandfather at a young age, and his passion for all things fly fishing only grew, leading to him earning 3 Team England Youth Loch Style Fly Fishing caps and culminating in his captaincy of Team England. Even though he is a seasoned Stillwater and reservoir angler, his true passion lies in his river fishing and he has been fortunate enough to have fished on a multitude of rivers, both in the UK and abroad.
