Ben McCormick

Ben grew up in Southern Indiana and spent most of his young years exploring on a canoe fishing for bass, carp and pan fish.  It wasn’t until moving to Colorado 6 years ago that Ben discovered his love for fly fishing.  Prior to joining Cutthroat Anglers, Ben built consolidated business offices for large health systems across the country.  After traveling on a plane 100 times a year for 10 years, he decided to call it quits and pursue a life revolving around fly fishing and the outdoors. Ben’s love for fly fishing and excitement to be involved in the industry brings some fresh energy to our group.
