Another Young Gun

UO friends, we’d like to introduce you to one of our recent additions to the UO team, Atticus Leithner. A native of west Georgia, Atticus has been fishing for nearly all of his life. He discovered
  flyfishing as a high school sophomore and has been hooked on the sport ever since. He led his high school fishing club and discovered new flyfishing techniques like Euronymphing and Tenkara.

Atticus is now a Biology major at the University of North Georgia, where he also serves as president of the college’s  TU-Five Rivers Flyfishing Club. An adventurer, he enjoys hiking, camping, fishing new waters, and overlanding in his pickup truck. He also enjoys helping our Helen customers with flies, supplies, and intel to enhance their times astream.

We are proud to have such a smart and personable young man on our staff.  Please join us in welcoming Atticus to the UO team and wishing him well in his college career. Atticus, we sure are glad that your life adventures now include a “camp” at our Helen shop while earning your degree!
