    Ok get your popcorn out. This could be an interesting discussion.

    Who should be in a northwest 2 handed rod hall of fame and why?

    Bob Stroble? Harry Lemire? Mike Kinney? Jimmy Green? Anyone got any others? Salmo?

    Nice, Kerry


    Ed Ward (Riveraddict), Mike Kinney (mkinney) and other active posters on internet...

    Why?
    Because they are dedicate in two handed casting education, love to share their knowledge, even through the internet...

    Among many others I think Bill McMillan. Champion of wild fish. And to a lesser degree sporting ethics.

    I watched Harry Lemire rise a bunch of fish last week and saw him fishing the Snake with a single hander. The guy is one of the best. From what he told a friend, he never fishes a two hander.

    1.) Robert Meiser.

    2.) The Smoker- random dude that I run into yearly up here. Catches fish and smokes heavily. Nice guy. I never remember his name. He's a legend in my mind.

    Harry says he doesn't fish a 2 hander anymore. The reason he would be included in a "Hall of Fame" is he and Bob Stroble were a couple of the firsts to use 2 handed rods for steelhead and also help start the developement of the so called Skagit lines.

    Great thread! and IMO...
    I think people would be appreciated if you can provide the reason you think those people has significant contribution to the NW two handed casting, just as Kerry stated in the very beginning. This will not only give us more knowledge about the history in the PNW and also let people recognize their achievement that not known by the outsiders (like me).

    My reasons for all the people mentioned so far, except Clay, are that they are total badasses. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    2 big contributions from John Farrar IMHO are (1) co-creating snap-T and (2) while not spey casting specific the use of marabou for steelhead flies. He pushed the envelope of how and with what we fish.
