GEORGE DANIEL AT THE SPOT
(11am – 3pm)
Shoot the sh_t with George at the Spot as he ties his favorite patterns and discusses leader construction for Dry, Nymph and Euro Nymph leaders
One of the top competitive fly fishers and current instructor, George Daniel, makes a welcome return to the SoCal. Not only did George make nymphing cool, but he also promoted streamer fishing from a method of last resort to a solid all day technique.
George has been chasing anything that swims with his fly rod since age 6 and still has the same passion 37 years later. George has competed at a high level for Fly Fishing Team USA, earning individual back to back US National Fly Fishing Championship titles and ranked as high as 5th in the World. George has also served as captain for Fly Fishing Team USA and Coach for the US Youth Fly Fishing Team. He has competed and won other regional and national fly fishing competitions over the years. At age 30, George decided to give up competitive fly fishing and focus on what he enjoys most-teaching.
George considers himself a teacher first and a fly fisher second. He has authored three best-selling fly fishing books and has authored dozens of articles for national fly fishing publications, including Fly Fisherman Magazine. He continues to travel the county conducting lessons and workshops for private groups, corporations, and conservation organizations.
