Tom Helgeson 1939 - 2010

"On Friday, November 12, the world of fly fishing lost one of its most passionate practitioners; those concerned about the stewardship of natural resources lost an eloquent advocate; those who fished with him lost a mentor; and those who knew him as a friend lost a priceless companion."

Tom was most recently noted as the owner of Midwest Fly Fishing Magazine and the founder and producer of the annual Great Water Fly Fishing Shows.

Our good buddy Paul Hanson with Sporting Life Outfitters said:  "When I started guiding in 1991 it was Tom who gave me the advice and encouragement to do so. I will miss his humor and wisdom. See you on the next river Tom. God Bless."

A memorial service for Tom will be held on Saturday, November 20th, at 2 pm at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 700 Snelling Ave, So, St. Paul MN.  You can also visit his website for future information: Midwest Fly Fishing
