“On the air, Mr. Harvey told me the incredible story of the beginning of his world famous fly fishing classes at Penn State University. It seems he enrolled at Penn State College in 1931 and quickly became the friend of another fisherman, R.L. Watts, the Dean of Penn State. During their first outing together, Mr. Harvey out-fished the Dean, 25 to 2, with a fly rod. George had been tying his own flies since he was ten.” Jim Slinksy offers praise of the legendary George Harvey in the Uniontown, Pennsylvania Herald Standard.
