Charley Hartley.  Not a very well known tour pro, but a super nice guy and one of the best smallmouth fisherman on the planet.

I'd go with Jay Yelas.  And to GobbleDog---One who turns down a 'Make-A-Wish' kid because he is too busy is not a dedicated fisherman, he is selfish.

It's hard for me to pick one, but there are several that I would really like to fish with:

Gerald Swindle would be a hoot to spend time on the water with -- I remember watching him in an FLW tournament years ago when he took out a chain saw to cut through a fallen tree to get into the back of a cove -- he won the tournament.

Woo Daves -- if you haven't seent the story about him and the kid with cancer, you should

But my absolute favorite is Rick Clunn -- he has been my idol for longer than any.  Not only a superb fisherman, but a real person.

#1. KVD! I really love his style of fishing! Can't wait to me him some day!

#2. David Walker - Met him twice, he's a great guy. He was willing to talk to me after a seminar for about an hour answering any questions I had.

3. Woo Daves - I've seen him several times. He's a great presenter in his seminars! And has gone above and beyond to answer questions I've had for him. As far as e-mailing me after he did some research first.

RR,

I met Zell at the Classic last year. He's a real down to earth guy!

I have to pick two because I love both Gerald Swindle and Kevin Vandam.  There are others that I enjoy but to me, those two embody everything that I love and respect about fishing.  Gerald is a classic southern born, southern bred guy who's in love with fishing.  His attitude is great, and he just intrigues me when he's talking, for some reason.  We all already know KVD's deal, so I won't go through it..but..I'd love to get to spend my life fishin with those two guys.

No hesitation for my answer.  Rick Clunn.  I like his low key intensity and his thoughtful approach.  It seems like nothing he does is random.  Right or wrong everything he does seems to have a reason behind it.  Also he has an uncanny ability to dig down when the pressure is most intense.  4 classic wins is phenominal.

Sorry, that was not Gerald Swindle that used the chainsaw.  It was David Dudley.  Dudley won the tournament.

John Semken, and Marc Marcantonio for regional pro's: These guys are top notch when it comes to personally helping you out and going above and beyond.

Aaron Martens, Joe Thomas: Aaron becuase he is sorta goofy like me, and he is versitile. Joe Thomas because i like his TV show and he sounds like a great guy and a real proffesional.

Denny Brauer because he is the only pro I've met who actually sounded like he wanted to go fish my little lake I described to him.  Randy Howell is another who seemed like he just wanted to go fish "anywhere, anytime". ;)
