US Youth Fly Fishing Team Adds 3 Anglers to Roster; Holding Practice in Bozeman, Montana
Head Coach Kalvin Kaloz, in coordination with the regional coaches and team managers has added 3 anglers to the 2021 US Youth Fly Fishing Team Roster. 3 Anglers from 3 different states will now be a part of the 2021 squad.
The anglers added are:
Drew Bone of Bernalillo, New Mexico
Max Logan of Boulder, Colorado
Henry Wagy of Phoenix, Arizona
These additions come just before the team hosts a practice in Bozeman, Montana July 28-31.
“Adding these young anglers comes at a good time to help grow the team,” said Kaloz. Interest after the pandemic has been outstanding, and getting young anglers some time on the water with veterans of the team with international experience will be critical for the success in the future. When this year’s World Championship in Bosnia was cancelled, we wanted to make sure the team had one last chance to get together, and that some of our younger anglers could spend some time on the water with the more experienced team members, The Bozeman practice will do just that.
The team practice will be held in Bozeman Montana July 28-31. Contact Tucker Horne, 704-904-6646 to schedule media availability during those dates.
