Archive of Ladyfisher Articles
Jeff Pierce, known to many of our readers as
"Dr.Fish" was honored by the Federation of Fly
Fishers recently with the presentation of the
Silver King Award. Jeff has been a faithful
contributor to our Bulletin Board as well as
author of several great articles for Fly Anglers
OnLine. His latest was
PARADISE FOUND: The Dry Tortugas Are Indeed An Anglers Nirvana.
Jeff Pierce is the Sales Manager of Fly-Fishing
Products for O. Mustad & Son (USA), Inc and
Partridge of Redditch. He is the Captain of Team
Mustad USA and is a diehard angler and fly tier.
Jeff is married to Stacy, father of 2 children, and
lives in upper New York state. He has traveled
from Buffalo to Borneo in search of finned quarry.
The Silver King Award is named after a highly prized
saltwater trophy, the tarpon. The award is not
presently annually, but is presented when an individual
who has made extraordinary contributions to the sport
of saltwater angling is nominated. The requirements include
unselfish promotion of saltwater fly fishing.
The award has only been given five times in the
years since it's inception in 1994. Previous

It is a great honor and a great feeling to be
recognized in such a way."
