Chase grew up in Kane, Pennsylvania, fishing in the Allegheny National Forest for brook trout and smallmouth bass. He left the area for college, but his love of the outdoors and wild places could not have drawn him back to Northcentral Pennsylvania any quicker after graduation. Chase is a Certified Casting Instructor with Fly Fishers International, President of the Seneca Chapter of Trout Unlimited, and has volunteered with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing. He is excited to help establish the first Mayfly Project in the Keystone State.
Hi, I am Kerry Lanza. I live in southeastern Pennsylvania with my wife Barbara. Our home is about an hour drive northwest of Philadelphia in rural “Pennsylvania Dutch” country. Growing up in the country, we had plenty of opportunity to fish, for anything, and anywhere. Having found fly fishing over 30 years ago, I find it a great way to connect with the wildness of the place. Fly fishing is now my true passion. For me, teaching is my way of giving back to a sport that has given me so much. Passing the passion to another generation helps to preserve trout fisheries for future generations.
