Tyler George


Tyler has been a multi-species angler for as long as he can remember. In the summer he would be found either targeting walleyes on the weekends with his father or passing the time wetting a line in the Milk River near and around his hometown of Glasgow. His winters were always littered with frequent ice fishing adventures and he has always loved the hard water opportunities that are available in this part of the country. As Winter passed, with it would come open water and he could be found on the mighty Missouri fishing for huge rainbow trout. For a short period of time during his college experience at the University of Montana, he primarily targeted trout on fly rod and spent the majority of his free time doing so. He is a conservationist at heart and strives for long-term sustainability in our Montana cat waters. Due to geographic location he briefly retired from chasing the elusive channel cat, only to target them on short-lived trips back to eastern MT. Due to some gentle persuasion from other board members, in addition to placing 2nd in the 2008 Cat Classic Tyler chose to jump right back into catfishing with both feet. Tyler and his wife Kim now reside in Sheridan, WY with their two daughter’s Cooper and Lilli. He will be serving that area and spending most of his time chasing cats on the Yellowstone River up in Montana and on Tongue River Reservoir on the Montana-Wyoming border. From 2009 to 2011, he was the tournament director of the Annual Yellowstone Challenge held in Huntley, MT in early May. He now assists fellow board member, Brady Flaten, with the operation of the Challenge as it's co-director.
