    Its hard to really say who the best are as im sure there are plenty of unknowns who just fish for themselves but if I have to throw some names out there I will say Brian O'Keefe/Todd Moen and the combination of fishing and content they put out. All of their videos get me excited to go out fishing and i really enjoy all the hard work they put into putting out quality content.

    I always say me. Then, I usually knock myself off of the list within 5 seconds of fishing.

    Lefty Kreh has been a big influence on me. He's one heck of a fisherman and caster.

With the knowledge theyve acquired over years of hard casting they rarely fail to connect. They are humble and helpful to fellow anglers and they are few and far in between. Having had the honor of meeting several of these great ones over the years I would like to hear from others opinions on what makes a great one and what they were like.
    Whether it be a river, lake, ocean, bay or puddle. If you stick with this site long enough I think your answer will be found... Right here. The men/women replying to questions asked.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    My buddy can catch a fish in a puddle of spit, but I vote for this guy

    Any and all facial hair is a requirement. The "stash" can help fend off the gnats flying into the shnoz and mouth while the beard can act as a drying patch. The combination can also act as camoflauge, a good gnarly beard can also act as a deterant against low/high holers as well as provide winging material in a pinch. All kidding aside the greatest fisherman are the ones having the most fun and tend not to care too much about it.

    The best may not be a fisherman....eg. Joan Wolf

    I know a few good female fly fisher's and thier approach, tack and handling of each situation is facinating, deadly and if I think about it too much...a little scary.

    The shop guys at Rocky Mtn. Anglers are all pretty accomplished, but they are willing to share tying knowledge, what flies to use, and where to go (within reason!). They have helped me out a lot with some very subtle hints, and they will help a total noob to learn a few tricks and catch more fish.

    That is a well placed thought WT!

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
