I’m very surprised to find out today that I’ve been nominated for Top Angler of the Year in the 2017 Faces Magazine Ottawa Awards! I’m not sure I deserve that title among the very talented and skilled anglers on this list, but I am really honoured to be there with them!
It’s wonderful to see anglers and fishing getting some recognition in a popular non-outdoor publication. Angling has a huge impact on tourism, is part of our heritage, and is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and become more acquainted with our environment causing us to take better care of it. Anglers and hunters are the top contributors to raising funds for conservation efforts.
Nominees include: Jim McLaughlin, Colin McKeown, Rob Jackson, Paul Shibata, and John Anderson. Voting closes on Friday so I hope you will take the time to cast your vote at the link below:
