Barry & Cathy Beck Fly Fishing Instruction

More Than 30 Years’ Experience of Fly-Fishing Adventures


Cast out into the sparkling waters of one of the coldest freestone trout streams in Pennsylvania.

Fly-fishing guides and instructors Barry and Cathy Beck have spent decades traveling the world to find the very best fly-fishing locations. Barry & Cathy Beck Fly Fishing Instruction offers that wisdom to fishers right in the scenic mountains of Benton, PA. Their private, catch-and-release waters are nestled in the heart of nature, so you can unwind and immerse yourself in guided, fly-fishing fun.



An afternoon of private instruction is the best way to get your feet wet in the world of fly fishing. In a three-hour session, you’ll learn all the basics. Practice casting, shooting line, and reading the water. And your guides will be there to share that rush of pride and triumph when you make your first catch. More experienced fishers may only need an hour or two to learn a new technique.

The fun continues longer when you book an Overnighter Package. Stay overnight at a local B & B and enjoy two days of private lessons and guided fishing. Waders, boots, and rods are included if needed. Just don’t forget to get your PA Fishing License and trout permit.



For the ultimate escape into nature, bring the whole family for the Country Life Experience. Kids of all ages will love the chance to breathe in the fresh air and take life a bit slower. Barry and Cathy have teamed up with Springdale Farm and The Lodge at Raven Creek to create a tranquil, two-night experience. Of course, you’ll try your hand at fly fishing. But you can also visit the animals at the farm or go on a waterfall hike at Ricketts Glen State Park. You can even relax with a kayak or boat ride.

Whether you want a full family retreat or just some quick fly-fishing tips, Barry & Cathy Beck Fly Fishing Instruction will help you appreciate some of the best fishing opportunities NEPA has to offer.

We had to explore this unique fishing experience for ourselves. Check out our video to see what makes Barry & Cathy Beck Fly Fishing Instruction so special.
