TEAM7x is pleased to announce its partnership with FLY FISHING BENEFACTORS, as inaugural members of its fly fishing Pro Staff.
Fly Fishing Benefactors is located in South Riding, VA, owned and operated by Carl Craig. FFB features a full line of rods, reels, line and accessories specifically for freshwater trout fishing. TEAM7x uses and has evaluated many of the FFB offerings in its no-charge fly fishing lessons, and on the water in guided fly fishing outings in eastern Connecticut.
“The FFB warrantied products are of the highest quality at prices extremely affordable, especially to the new fly fisher. Our concentration is mostly with folks new to the fly fishing sport many of whom have yet to make an investment in gear. Carl’s attention to detail and commitment to quality in FFB’s products allows new fly fishers to purchase full outfits at some of the best price points in the industry,” said Tom Daniels of TEAM7x.
“Not only are we impressed with the FFB product line, but equally impressive is Carl and FFB’s commitment to the various organizations he supports. Reel Recovery®, Casting for Recovery®, and Healing Waters®, all receive significant portions of profits from the sale of Fly Fishing Benefactors products. Since we as TEAM7x are committed to attracting new people, especially younger folks to fly fishing through no-charge lessons, this is a great way to introduce the FFB products in the northeast. When you buy an outfit from FFB, you are benefitting some outstanding causes,” said Everett Thornton of TEAM7x.
Tom and Everett have been fly fishing the Rhode Island and eastern Connecticut area for many years, with frequent trips to the great Farmington River in western Connecticut and the upper Delaware River system in NY state. They have made several trips to the outstanding waters in Montana , Idaho and Wyoming . In the past, both have been fly fishing instructors in Rhode Island DEM’s freshwater fishing programs. Tom has taken private lessons with Lefty Kreh, and Everett is an accomplished fly tier and instructor. Both are members of Trout Unlimited and the Federation of Fly Fishers.
TEAM7x currently offers instruction and its “Evenings on the Natchaug” guided fly fishing programs on eastern Connecticut ’s trophy trout stream, the Natchaug River , and surrounding trout streams.
