George began fly fishing at age 6, while growing up along the banks of a native brook trout fishery in northern PA. Eventually moving to the famed central PA waters, George became acquainted with his future mentor and friend, Joe Humphreys. George credits Joe for his fly fishing foundation, especially his nymphing game. George eventually became a member of Fly Fishing Team USA, placing as high as 5th in the world and winning back to back national championships. He retired from competing immediately afterwards and was ask to coach the US Youth Fly Fishing Team, which he did for two years, followed by two more years of coaching the adult Fly Fishing Team USA. George enjoyed his experience competing and coaching, but fly fishing education was always his favorite thing to do.
George has been teaching and guiding since age 18. He’s written several best-selling fly fishing books, frequent contributor to Fly Fisherman Magazine, and conducts seminars and educational workshops across the country. He’s currently the Director of Fly Fishing and Outreach for the Pennsylvania State University-a position once held by his mentor, Joe Humphreys. George is also fortunate enough to have professional relationships with the following fly fishing companies: The Orvis Fly Fishing Company, Scientific Anglers, Hog Island Boats, FlyCraft Boats, Big Frank’s Outdoors, Loon Outdoors, Costa Sunglasses, and Fulling Mills. He currently resides in central PA with his wife, two children, and Boykin spaniel.
