From American Tackle:
Ben Stein is the newest addition to the American Tackle staff. He will be assisting in Sales and Customer Service.
Ben grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana fishing for redfish and trout at a very young age. Along with fishing “all tackle” applications he developed a passion for fly fishing that has carried him to exotic destinations such as Baja Mexico, Guatemala, Venezuela and Costa Rica – as well as throughout the United States in search of all angling opportunities from chasing trout to battling Billfish.
While pursuing bonefish and tarpon Ben managed to find enough time to work for World Wide Sportsman in Islamorada, Florida. After a move to Orlando to work for Bass Pro Shops he was commissioned by Grande Lakes, Ritz Carlton Orlando to assist in developing a fishing and outdoor program on property.
Ben began the first ever two day fly fishing school associated with the Ritz Carlton and has taught hundreds in their fly fishing program as well as guiding them to trophy large-mouth bass.
Darrin Heim of AT says, “we are excited to have Ben be part of our team, his vast angling experience will be a real asset to the development of our products and growing our customer base”. Ben will be based at AT Headquarters in Oviedo Florida and will be representing at upcoming trade shows. To contact Ben Stein: [email protected]
