The Hall of Fame Awards Committee meets annually in August to make their selections for the following year. After much deliberation there were 11 individuals and one organization inducted into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame’s 2017 year class. Dan Basore has shared his knowledge through his “Fishing History” column in Midwest Outdoors and other publications for over 30 years. He especially loves to introduce kids to fishing and has done so by hosting scout groups and school groups with a structured program. For many years Basore has been in charge of the National Fishing Lure Collector’s Club which recognizes tackle makers while they are alive so they can realize what a treasure their collections are and how much they are appreciate Dan is being honored with a dinner to celeberate his induction into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall Of Fame ( and his 75th birthday ) on July 29th. The dinner will be held at Bass Pro Shop 709 Janes Ave, Bolingbrook, IL Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
