National Fly Fishing Champ: George Daniel

If you win the National Fly Fishing Championship, you might just get to make the keynote speech at your Alma mater. According to an article in The Express ,George Daniel addressed recent graduates of Loch Haven University and used his sport of fly fishing as a metaphor for life.

His third and final piece of advice was for the graduates to learn and grow from their mistakes.“Failure is not always a bad thing. You have to look at failure as an opportunity,” he said.He shared that he has always learned more from his losses than from his victories, such as when he finished “dead last” in a fly-fishing competition in Wyoming.
