Store Manager: Garry Clouner
Garry excels in connecting people with the natural world. In the spring of 2016, Garry founded GoWildPA – a grassroots movement to educate and encourage people to “get outside” via social media. Furthermore, Garry has been an instructor for Trout in the Classroom and a guide for the Yellow Creek Fly Fishing Classic in partnership with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. He has participated in local stream cleanups and volunteered with Project Healing Waters. In short, Garry loves working with people – helping outfit their every need.
When Garry isn’t at work or volunteering his time throughout the greater community, he enjoys hiking and camping in the mountains chasing native Brook Trout. You can also find him on his paddleboard chasing elusive Musky in the surrounding rivers of Western PA.
