The Fly Fishing Hall of Fame, in Livingston Manor, New York, announced that it has inducted five new members for its 2023 class. Those members include John Atherton, Arnold Gingrich, Will Godfrey, Frank Mele, and Samuel Phillippe & Son. All of these individuals made sweeping contributions to the sport of fly fishing, whether it was building bamboo fly rods or creating art that depicts the act of angling.
