Saskatchewan Walleye Trail Hall of Fame

  Each year the SWT elects a present or past member to the SWT Hall of Fame.  For 2013 Bob Kirkpatrick was awarded the honor and was presented with his plaque at the Regina Beach tournament rules meeting.

Bob has been a member of the Saskatchewan Walleye Trail since its inception and is very deserving of this award.  He has promoted the sport of tournament fishing and fishing in general through various media outlets including television and by his travels to tournaments throughout Canada and the US.  Bob is also a fierce competitor as demonstrated by his success in both SWT and non SWT tournaments.

Bob and I fished many tournaments together in the early years of the trail and I consider him a good friend.  I regret that I was unable to attend the presentation of this award.

Congratulations Bob for this well deserved award.
