George considers himself a Heinz 57 fly angler, meaning that all of his skill sets have come from many different teachers.

He enjoys absorbing knowledge from everybody that he fishes with and passing along the lessons he learns to others.
George is a guide, instructor, speaker, author, former competitive angler, and a former coach for both US Youth and Fly-Fishing Team USA. He owns and operates Livin On The Fly, a fly-fishing education service located in central Pennsylvania. George enjoys running, photography, and spending time with his family.

“I caught my first fish on a fly at age six, and that’s all it took for fly fishing to become a lifelong passion. My favorite fishing scenario involves traveling and fishing with my wife, Amidea, our 7-year-old son, and 9-year-old girl, no matter the location or species.”
