LEGENDS OF THE SPORT ~ GUIDO HIBDON

Legends abound in our sport on all levels. Every lake, every
river, each locale and region, freshwater and saltwater, has
legendary anglers that ply their waters. Legendary guides,
legendary trophy hunters, legendary tournament anglers are
part of the fabric woven into each fishing hole. Wherever
fish are caught, legends exist. Some are local legends. A
few evolve to become legends of regional, national and
global proportions.

Guido Hibdon's legend began with guiding on Lake of the
Ozarks in Missouri at the age of 14. Hibdon's legend grew as
he turned pro in 1980 to fish the BASS and FLW circuits. His
legacy includes 1988 BASS Masters Classic Champion and 1990
and 1991 Angler of the Year titles.

Please enjoy reading the interview by Bernie Schultz as
published in the July/August issue of our Inside Line
magazine:
