George Daniel presentation at RVTU on Nov. 15th at Pequest

Post by Rusty Spinner » Thu Oct 18, 2018 11:59 am

George is the man when it comes to catching lots of fish and big fish on the nymph. He will be presenting Nymphing 2.0 on Thursday, November 15th at the Pequest Trout Hatchery's Education Building at 7:30 pm. All are welcome and you do not need to be a TU member to attend. We expect a packed house, but Pequest can hold a lot of people. George is a highly known author and angler living in PA and speaking all over the country and at fly fishing shows. Come hear how you can greatly improve your nymph fishing tactics for more trout fishing success.

George's bio:

George Daniel began fly fishing at age six in Potter County, Pennsylvania. Growing up along a native brook trout fishery designated as a “kids only section” and, being the only kid in the village who fished, George was able to fly fish and practice a lot, so he developed a true passion for it. Through his early teens, much of his fly fishing knowledge was self-taught. However, when George was 14, his family relocated to central Pennsylvania, where, at a local fly shop, he found himself talking to his fly fishing idol, Joe Humphreys. Joe kindly took George under his wing and began providing him with his first, formalized fly fishing instruction. When George was just 16-years-old, Joe began to provide instruction on all levels, e.g. the basic cast to advanced nymphing casts. George credits Joe for the bulk of his knowledge, but also graciously acknowledges many national and international fly fishing professionals who have worked with him during the past.

Later, George had an opportunity to try out for Fly Fishing Team USA in Bend, Oregon. After qualifying for the team, George had the opportunity to compete in six World Fly Fishing Championships, coach both the US Youth Team and Fly Fishing Team USA in four World Championships. During this time, George has had an opportunity to travel the globe and learn from many of the best anglers in the world. George is a two-time US National Fly Fishing Champion and was ranked as high as 5th in the world. George is the former head coach for Fly Fishing Team USA. George also spent two years coaching the US Youth Fly Fishing Team

George’s true passion is in fly fishing education. He appears at clubs and fly fishing shows around the country, where he conducts lectures and seminars. He also logs more than 280 days a year on waters near and far.

George is not only the author of two highly regarded and best selling books, he has also published articles in Fly Fisherman, American Angler and Fly Tyer magazines.

George is an ambassador for a number of fly fishing companies including Orvis, Tacky Fly Boxes, FlyCraft Boats, Regal Vises, Competitive Angler Tying Supplies, Golden Trout Lanyards, and Loon.

Due to the impending snow storm, the November RVTU meeting has been cancelled and our guest speaker has been booked for '19 instead. Thanks, Mother Nature :roll:
