Club Meeting on MONDAY (not Weds) with GEORGE DANIEL
Monday, June 12, 2023, 6:30 PM until 9:00 PM
Registration is not Required
Program: George Daniel
MONDAY - JUNE 12
GEORGE DANIEL | NEW NYMPHING TACTICS
When George Daniel first exploded on to the fly fishing scene with his landmark book Dynamic Nymphing in 2011, it prompted the question, "How do you follow that?" Three years later the answer was the equally important seminal work on streamer fishing, Strip Set.
Heralded as an overnight sensation, George's exceptional career as a competitive angler prepared him well for the success of both books. 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. In previous visits to Southern California, George has spoken on both topics. Ever the innovator, he continues to pioneer advanced nymphing styles such as the popular MONO rigs.
In this program George will share some of his favorite fly fishing tips and tricks from the 2022 season. Lessons include pursuit of large brown trout in Arkansas, musky on the fly, chasing hex and eastern green drakes, his favorite mono systems for nymphs, dry flies, and streamers.
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 gve up competitive fly fishing and focus on what he enjoys most-teaching.
George Daniel 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 fo
