    Love to see names like Bennie Craig, Ray Ball, Eddie George, Fred Hall, Jim Grasque, and Wiley Oakley. These are the kind of guys I think about when I think of the Smokies. Bennie was a great influence during my early fly tying years.

    Default Atlanta fly fishing show february 1-2 2019 infinite energy center

    The Atlanta Fly Fishing Show was another great event this year, Ben Furimsky & his family
    put on not only the biggest consumer fly shows but are a class act to boot. Thanks to him also
    for taking part in the Southern Trout Magazine's "Legends of the Fly" Hall of Fame again this year.
    We had a blast over two days of meeting people and taking part in an event that honors those who
    have contributed years of service and dedication to our sport through volunteer and conservation work.
    It was an honor to meet the families of some inductees who have passed on and to see what the awards
    mean to them, in addition to those inductees who are still living and received their award in person.
    Inducted this year were Don Kirk, Monte Seehorn, Chuck Kraft, Eddie George, Joe Manley Sr, and Eugene Shuler
    It was also an honor with the blessings of the George Family to accept his award to be presented to his wife Mona.

    Below are some pictures from the "Legends of the Fly" Hall of Fame and the show:
