Fly Fishing Loses a Great Friend

The fly fishing community as a whole and the Midwest area, in particular, lost a great friend recently with the passing of Tom Helgeson on November 12, 2010. Tom was Editor-In-Chief of Midwest Fly Fishing magazine, a wonderful publication that focused on fly fishing throughout the Midwest and Great Lakes area. Tom also ran the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expos in Chicago and Minneapolis.

Helgeson was an active steward of the environment and preserving the resources of the region. He had a passion for educating anglers and bringing young blood into the sport of fly fishing. It was my pleasure and honor to have known Tom and worked with him for many years. He will be missed by all.
