It is with profound sadness the passing of Cathy Beck, beloved wife, and esteemed fly fishing expert. Cathy passed away last week, leaving behind a legacy of passion, dedication, and expertise in the world of fly fishing.

Throughout her journey, she became a respected figure in the fly fishing community, known for her unparalleled skills, dedication, and infectious enthusiasm for the sport.

Cathy resided in northeastern Pennsylvania, in the small town of Benton with her husband Barry. At home, they offered fly fishing programs designed for 1-10 people and had four guides who rounded their service. In addition to their guide service, Cathy traveled with Barry around the world, shooting photos for Frontiers–the world’s largest bird hunting, safari, and fly fishing travel agency. Both Cathy and Barry hosted trips for many years on a schedule to different lodges and destinations all over the world.
