Pennsylvania natives Barry and Cathy Beck are the husband and wife photojournalist team that exemplifies the best of the old and the new world of fly fishing. From their simple roots running a fly shop on the small freestone Fishing Creek near Benton, PA and fishing with the likes of Vince Marinaro on Falling Spring Run they have since traveled the world together, hosting adventure-travel fly fishing expeditions and teaching modern fly casting techniques.
They continue to take breath-taking angling pictures that change the way we view the fly fishing world with their photographs. The Beck’s have scored hundreds of print magazine covers and articles, fishing catalogs, websites, and are now populating the exploding new world of Internet virtual fly fishing e-zines. They have authored numerous books, including The Blue Ribbon Guide to PA Trout Streams, Seasons on the Bighorn and the Outdoor Photographers’ Handbook.
