Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame recognizes the contributions of individuals to the club. We recognize individuals at the annual Installation Dinner which is now better known simply as the "Crab Feed".  Two Presidential awards are presented at the dinner.  The "Fly Fisher of the Year" is awarded to an individual who has made significant contributions to the club.  The "Dry Fly" award is given to a member who has significantly improved their fly fishing skills in a big way... in other words, the most improved fly fisher.

In addition to the "Fly Fisher of the Year" and "Dry Fly" awards, the club can also recognize other individuals for contributions made over a sustained period of time.  We began this tradition in 2008 when we recognized Sandy Leo for her contributions to the club as Conservation chair for a number of years. That year we instituted a Trout in the Classroom project and appropriately named it the "Sandy Leo Trout in the Classroom Project" in honor of her service ! 

In 2019 we recognized our long time member, Steve Potter, for his contributions, achievements and service.  Steve has held numerous leadership positions within the club including that of President.  Steve can be considered a Master fly tier and regularly donates his "works of art" to club raffles and auctions as well as providing fly tying instructions to our members.  Steve, being a retired veteran himself, is an avid supporter of the Veterans First Fly Fishing program and spends countless hours of his personal time providing fly tying instructions at local Veterans Hospitals.  In recognition of all of this, Steve Potter was presented with the first TFF Lifetime Achievement and Service Award at the 2020 Club Installation Dinner.

Our Golden Trout award recognizes fly fishers that have demonstrated a well rounded mastery of our sport. Applicants are required to demonstrate competency in several areas including: fly tying, rod building, conservation, casting and authorship among others.
