Awfully tough to choose.....

This was tough for me. I chose Lefty, but Dave Whitlock is a VERY close second for reasons that I stated in a previous thread. They are both wonderful ambassadors for the sport and I hope that they are around for many more years.

Please, for the sake of our sport, recognize the good guys and gals, but don't deify them. Some forget that as anglers, we are only that. We are not doctors saving lives, or raising people up out of poverty. It makes me sad to go to the shows and watch some guy try and out lefty Joan, in an attempt to flip his own celebrity.
Nice folks? Sure. Good fishermen? You bet! Heroes like fire men, doctors and teachers? Not quite.
I will say that Wulf, Whitlock, and Kreh are great teachers and all mentioned make our lives better. I vote for my mom as my icon.

Good selection... anyone named Lefty has got to be good.. I know we can not include all the name we put down... but I guess ,overall, for both Fresh and salt is has to be Lefty... for me.
