The Fly Fishing Hall of Fame at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum in Livingston Manor, New York, has announced the 2010 class of inductees: Art Lee, author of author of Fishing Dry Flies for Trout on Rivers and Streams; John Randolph, longtime editor of Fly Fisherman magazine; Louis Rhead, an Englishman whose books The Speckled Brook Trout and American Trout Stream Insects are considered important to the development of the sport; and the iconoclastic Jack Gartside, innovative tier and writer, who died last year. The induction ceremony will take place on October 9 and is open to the public.
The American Fly Fishing Trade Association (AFFTA) announced last week that the 2011 International Fly Tackle Dealer show will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana. It’s a bold move for the organization, which is looking to shake things up.
