The Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame (The Hall) in Hayward, Wisconsin is the international headquarters for education, recognition and promotion of fresh water sportfishing. Each year The Hall recognizes

individuals, groups and organizations for their impact benefiting fresh water angling. Individuals

and organizations are honored for outstanding achievements in fishing accomplishments

regarding career success and innovation in competition, invention, science, education,
