    Although there are several worthy names on the list the list misses most all the very best anglers out there. I'm quite amused by this list to be honest

    "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.

    TO NOMINATE SEND YOUR CHOICE TO: Nominate for the 2018 Legends of the Fly Hall of Fame. Nominations close Oct. 30, 2017. Email Don@southerntrout.com to submit a nomination."

    Sorry your favorites did not get nominated by public fan vote, hopefully next year your choices will be nominated. Thanks for your support and hope you can come to the Atlanta Fly Fishing Show on February 2, 2018 and join us for a great weekend!

    I think that the list is not about who catches the most or largest fish, but rather about those people who have dedicated a major portion of their life to promoting fly fishing in this region. There are other honors for best anglers, this is about people who have inspired others to be better anglers.
