Maxine McCormick has been a name that we have been hearing a lot lately. She’s a fly casting phenom from the Pacific Northwest that has been making waves in the world fly casting competitions worldwide. The Portland native is the youngest world champion caster in the sport’s history winning gold at the latest distance world championship in England with a 189 ft cast, as well as taking gold in the trout accuracy casting competition.

We look forward to watching Maxine’s performances this year and are stoked to see more and more young people falling in love with the sport of fly fishing.
