Hello Everyone,

Just an update. The name Glen Andrews will now and forever be enshrined in the Legends of the Outdoors National Hall of Fame in Springville, TN. The ceremony took place on August the 14th in Nashville at the Renaissance Hotel under the direction of Garry Mason the Hall founder and director.

Hall of Fame Inductees: Glen is second from the left about Garry Mason. Judy Wong is in the gold.

It was an eventful day filled with lots of music, speeches and good food. Many famous personalities were inducted and introducing inductees. Some of the fishing legends included Hank Parker (two-time bassmaster champion), Judy Wong (one of two other anglers who has successful defended her title the following year), Gary Yamamoto (a famous lure manufacturer) and Ray Scott, who flew in just to introduce Dad.

I was surprised and honored to be presented with the annual “Legacy Award” for my efforts to keep Dad’s legacy alive through our book An Impossible Cast. The award is bestowed to only one person a year and is a great national honor. It is official, I am now an Award-Winning Author.

Dad has also been included in The Arkansas Encyclopedia of Culture and History organized by the Central Arkansas Library system.  We wrote the article, so check out the link above if you have a minute.

Our next targets are the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Pro-Fishing Hall of Fame, IGFA Hall of Fame and Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame.

We also have interest from another national magazine and a TV show on RFD TV.
