06 Aug New Team Member: George Daniel
Introducing our newest team member…George Daniel!
The best advice that I have received over the years is “Always surround yourself with great people” I can truly say that I have taken this to heart, and somehow I believe that I have managed to have successfully done so. Honestly, the result has been amazing! I am very proud to have such a strong support staff consisting of some of the most passionate, intense, and knowledgeable people in their respective fields.
So, in continuing to build upon this growth…I, along with our extended Clutch Fly Rods Family am very excited to finally announce an exciting new partnership with George Daniel. George has recently joined the Clutch Family as a Product Development Specialist. George brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience that will be essential in the development of many new and exciting products within the Clutch Brand.
George is a former manager of the TCO State College Fly Shop and now owns and operates Livin On The Fly LLC., a guide/educational service company located near State College, PA. George held a spot on Fly Fishing Team USA for 7 seasons, and in that brief period had success by winning back-to-back US National Championships and placing in the top 5 in the 2006 World Fly Fishing Championships. George still remains involved with the US Youth Fly Fishing Team, as well as writing and conducting fly-fishing clinics/presentations across the country. His first book, Dynamic Nymphing has become a best seller. Currently, George is working on a second book project titled “Strip-Set” which will be released September 2015.
Please help me welcome George to the Clutch Family, as there are many exciting projects to come…
