Hello Joseph!

These mountains sure cultivate some fine young anglers and flyfishers!  Our home county, White, has really blessed UO with great staffers such as Helen shop manager and guide Wes McElroy. Well, we’ve got another winner for you in Joseph Clark!  Joseph recently joined our team and is a perfect addition to the Helen store. His combination of youthful energy, friendliness, and local angling experience is serving our customers well.  Here is Joseph, in his own words. Enjoy the pics, too!

“I’m originally from White County and am now a high school Junior.  I’ve  been fishing as long as I can remember. Most of my early efforts were aimed at largemouth bass in local ponds and small reservoirs.

I was introduced to fly fishing about four years ago.  Ever since then I have been primarily a fly angler. I like to do a lot of river bass and striper fishing near my house on the upper Hooch. By far my favorite style of fly fishing would have to be for those warmwater species but, when I’m not fishing warm water,  I love wild trout fishing on small mountain streams!

I love my job at UO and the opportunities to help the diversity of anglers who walk into our store. “

Please join us in welcoming Joseph to our UO team. He is eager to help you and looks forward to your next visit to Helen. Congrats Joseph, and good luck in school!
