George Daniel
George Daniel is a naturally curious fly fisher-he loves traveling with his family and learning from the best anglers in the country. He has been a competitor and captain for FF Team USA as well as a coach for the US Youth Fly Fishing Team. He authored the best selling book, Dynamic Nymphing and his second book, Strip Set (a streamer book) was be released in September 2015. He guides near his home in central PA and travels the country with his wife conducting seminars on all aspects of trout fishing.

For years, George enjoyed drift boat trips at popular destinations and always wanted a watercraft to float his local waters, but was never happy with the available options. That was until he noticed a new boat concept at a fly fishing show called Flycraft. That introduction became a game changer for George-allowing him to fish rivers both small and large from his home in central PA to large western rivers. What makes so much financial sense to George is the fact he doesn’t have to upgrade his Subaru to larger pickup truck to tow a drift boat. Flycraft is easily and securely placed on top of his Subaru without the need for purchasing a larger vehicle or trailer.
Lance Egan
Lance Egan is arguably the best fly fisherman on the planet. From competitive fly fishing, to just getting out to have some fun, he truly is at the apex of the sport.

Lance chooses the Flycraft for a lot of reasons but I think his favorite is how easy it is to take his son, Mikey, out for the day and put him on the fish. It’s truly an honor to have Lance on our boats.

Landon Mayer
“It is truly a traveling anglers ultimate tool!" says Landon Mayer about the Flycraft Stealth.

Landon Mayer, a fly-fishing instructor, long-time guide in the Florissant, CO area, and author, has made his mark in the fly fishing world with his obsession and expertise pursuing large trout with small flies and lightweight fly-fishing gear.

Mayer’s passionate about sharing his techniques and tricks of the sport with other fly fishing enthusiasts via guiding, teaching classes, writing for Fly Fisherman and High Country Angler magazines, and through his books 101 Trout Tips: A Guide’s Secrets, Tactics and Techniques (new for 2015), Colorado’s Best Fly Fishing, Sight Fishing for Trout, and How to Catch the Biggest Trout of Your Life, in addition to two DVDs: Landing the Trout of Your Life and Weapons of Bass Production.

Mayer also raves about the ease of throwing the Stealth into the back of his truck, and heading out to fish, no problem. A trailer is not needed with the Flycraft Stealth small fishing boat, which is a plus for fishing pros and all fishermen alike.

“It’s also a huge advantage to be able to stay low and stealthy to sneak up on rising fish, but then be able to stand up once in position to fight that fish for make that longer cast to a fish further away,” says Mayer.
Doug McKnight
A renowned fly fishing guide based out of Livingston, MT, Doug McKnight leads fresh and salt water fishing trips all over the world for Yellow Dog Adventures.

Obsessed with fly fishing from the start, McKnight began the sport at nine years old and hasn't quit since. “I have been a bit of a fishing nut since I could remember," McKnight said. The spark McKnight felt as a child only grew with time. “In my late teens, I pretty much decided that I wanted to make creative fly tying a part of my living," McKnight said.

In the past two decades, McKnight has built a reputation as an expert fly tyer in nearly every facet of the craft. From trout flies, bass, saltwater, big game flies, deer hair flies, realistic flies, and Atlantic Salmon flies, McKnight is a versatile fly tyer who lets his creativity shine through. In 2003, Umpqua Feather Merchants signed him up as a signature fly tyer, and you can buy his unique fly patterns in fly shops around the world. In 2010, Fly Fisherman magazine published a streamer-tying article written by McKnight that was very well received. He continues to write for regional and national publications, and he's excited about all of the opportunities the Flycraft inflatable fishing boat offers to fisherman around the world.
Paper Bag Fisherman, aka Andrew Leus
Ymir, British Columbia isn't known as a fly fishing mecca. Yet in Ymir, lives one of the most passionate anglers on the planet, the Paper Bag Fisherman, aka Andrew Leus.

Andrew feels that fishing is really not about the angler, it’s about the fish, so he simply hides his identity with a pre-drawn paper bag and lets the fish get all the glory.

“The Paper Bag is a useful item. When properly contemplated, it may be one of the most useful inventions of all time.”
-Paper Bag Fisherman

It’s turned into a bit of a tradition this paper bag thing, and Andrew is known far and wide as "The Paper Bag Fisherman", but at its roots is an incredibly authentic, and creative soul looking to learn, share and create memories with friends on the water, and in the Flycraft.

When not fishing, Andrew is a talented artist creating obscure works of amazingly intricate art. From large paintings to hobbled together sculptures made from found items on his long walks and time on the water, his art is truly unique and worthy of the praise it has garnered.
