    Default Who are the best all around flyfisherman/fisherman in the world?

    The greatest are men and women who can fish any body of water be it river , lake , ocean , bay or puddle with knowledge and confidence. They do not need a boat or a guide or an ultra expensive stick. They have the ability to read the water , spot the fish and the talent to understand the habitat each species live and what turns them on. 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.

    Hi Boz,

    Welcome to the Forum I won't be much help in identifying the greatest anglers, for me and my fly fishing it's a personal commitment. However I will grant that there have been many people who have contributed greatly through their innovation and ability to communicate their skill to the masses. I am grateful that I did not have to think 'all' of this up on my own, I doubt that I could have or would have without those who have went before me.

    Anyway, welcome to the forum,

    Ard

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

    Famous or great? There are famous fisherman I don't see as being that great. There are people you never heard of I think are awsome. Oh, and a big mustache helps.

    He can lay down a size 4 Salmonfly dry like it was a size 22 midge.

    He can mend a line over 6 different currents to get the perfect drift.

    Tarpon bow to him.



    He is the most interesting fly fisherman in the world.

    Stay thirsty, my friend.
