The Board of Directors of Trout Unlimited Madmen Chapter #477 is pleased to announce this year’s Annual Meeting which will be held in conjunction with the Chapter’s first-ever Gala event at the Simon Kenton Inn in Springfield, OH. All Chapter members, their guests and others interested in supporting the Mad River are invited to attend. This is NOT a formal attire event.

The “meeting” portion of this affair will be brief with the main emphasis being on fun, food, entertainment and camaraderie. “Social Hour” begins at 6:00 p.m. with a cash bar, looping fly fishing videos and guest fly-tiers Kevin Ramsey and George Daniel. A buffet-style dinner from 7:00 until 8-ish followed by a 15-minute (or so) business meeting. Our main presentation by George Daniel will follow. The evening will conclude with our biggest raffle yet, including a Thomas & Thomas fly rod and reel (TBD) as the Grand Prize.

George Daniel began fly fishing at age six in Potter County, Pennsylvania. Growing up along a native brook trout fishery designated as a “kids only section,” and being the only kid in the village who fished, George was able to fly fish and practice a lot, so he developed a true passion for it. Through his early teens, much of his fly fishing knowledge was self-taught.

When George was 14, his family relocated to central Pennsylvania, where he found himself talking to his fly fishing idol, Joe Humphreys, at a local fly shop. Joe kindly took George under his wing and began providing him with his first, formalized fly fishing instruction. When George was just 16, Joe began to provide instruction on all levels; George credits Joe for the bulk of his knowledge, but also graciously acknowledges many national and international fly fishing professionals who have worked with him during the past.

Later, George had an opportunity to try out for Fly Fishing Team USA in Bend, Oregon. After qualifying for the team, George had the opportunity to compete in five World Fly Fishing Championships, coach both the US Youth Team and Fly Fishing Team USA in four World Championships. During this time, George has had an opportunity to travel the globe and learn from many of the best anglers in the world. George is a two-time US National Fly Fishing Champion and was ranked as high as 5th in the world.

George’s true passion is in fly fishing education. He appears at clubs and fly fishing shows around the country, where he conducts lectures and seminars. He also logs more than 280 days a year on waters near and far. George is not only the author of two highly regarded and best selling books, he has also published articles in Fly Fisherman, American Angler and Fly Tyer magazines. His most recent book, Nymphing: New Angles and Tactics was recently released.George is an ambassador for a number of fly fishing companies including Orvis, Tacky Fly Boxes, FlyCraft Boats, Regal Vises, Competitive Angler Tying Supplies, Golden Trout Lanyards, and Loon.
