We obtain the affine Euler-Poincaré equations by standard Lagrangian reduction and deduce the associated Clebsch-constrained variational principle. These results are illustrated in deriving the equations of motion for continuum spin systems and Kirchhoff's rod, where they provide a unified geometric interpretation.
