FOCUS - fishing without an indicator. Fishing without an indicator is not difficult but it does require understanding a few simple principals including body position, proper fly placement, and of course reading the drift. This class will focus on those basic principals along with equipment, patterns, and rigging.

THE CLASS - The class will be broken into two parts (inside and outside). The inside component will entail a brief classroom session where George will discuss patterns, rigging and breaking down specific scenarios and discussing how to approach them with a nymphing rig. The outside component will be putting the information to the test on the Yellow Breeches. You will also be spending time working with George one on one to improve your game.

9' - 10’ 3wt or 4wt fly rod
Small selection of patterns for the Yellow Breeches
Valid PA license
Wading equipment

What George will provide:

Nymphing outfit (rod and reel) for anyone who request ahead of time

About George

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.

When George went off to a university, he didn’t stray very far from the lovely streams of Pennsylvania. He attended Lock Haven University, where he earned a degree in natural resource management.

​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 then spent the next 5 years working in the TCO State College location where he spent his days helping anglers with the skills he acquired over the years.

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 trout waters near and far. George and his wife Amidea bought and restored an old home near his favorite trout stream, and it is here where they spend many hours with their two children walking along the banks, throwing stones and sometimes even catching a fish.

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 a pro-staffer 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. George is a fly designer and brand ambassador for Holly Flies.
