    Default Nominate Now Southern Trout "Legends of the the Fly" Hall of Fame

    Below is the article and link to get your nominations in for the Southern Trout Magazine "Legends of the the Fly" Hall of Fame presentation that is returning in conjunction with the Atlanta Fly Fishing Show February 2nd & 3rd, 2018. Last year's show marked the return of the first dedicated fly fishing show to the Atlanta area in 10 years and it was a jaw dropper! This is only one of seven shows in the U.S. that is produced by the Furimsky family that features a veritable who's who in the fly fishing world and the closest one to our region. I can only describe it by saying if you are a fly fishing angler it is like Christmas morning as a kid coming down the stairs and finding out you got a pony, a Lionel train, a new bicycle and a sled! I can say it is mind blowing to see in one room Lefty Kreh, Bob Clouser, Joe Humphries and Dave Whitlock and everyone we read about standing together laughing and talking about fishing.

    It was also the inaugural launch of the Southern Trout Magazine "Legends of the Fly" Hall of Fame event where twelve inductees were admitted as the first ever into the Hall of Fame. I was honored to be asked to be the emcee of the event and floored to be asked to return again this year to host the presentation. It was unbelievable and humbling to stand and call to the podium the truly greats of angling and writing or their family members and see what it meant to them and those in the audience as they received the award.

    I strongly encourage you to get your nominations in as the deadline for nominees ends on October 30th, 2017. This is truly fan driven just like the baseball All Stars elections, many asked me why somebody was not nominated for the "Legends of the Fly" Hall of Fame. The answer is simple...you did not nominate them or follow up and vote for them, get busy and get involved if you want your favorite nominated.
