Clam Inducted to Hall of Fame
Ice fishermen are no strangers to the Clam name. The Fishing Hall of Fame of Minnesota announced Clam to it’s list for induction. The Hall of Fame recognize indiviuals and organizations that heve made a major impact on Minnesota’s sport fishing industry. The Hall recognizes education, legislation, guiding, manufacturing, media promotions or other means. Criteria for both nomination and induction vary greatly: number of years in the industry, proven accomplishments, and dedication to the promotion of the sport of fishing.
“We at Clam are beyond humbled to receive this setemed honor,” explains Dave Osborne, Clam Outdoors Owner. “I feel incredibly blessed to be included with others in the sport of fishing.”
The company took an ice-fishing specific focus when ice fishing professional Dave Genz introduced his “fish trap” creation. Genz’s concept was to put a shjelter around an ice fisherman so they could stay out longer and be more comfortable, thus making it possible to catch more fish. “As a Hall of Famer, I understand the magnitude of this accomplishment,” says Genz. “I’m as proud as I’ve ever been to be part of the Clam family and am happy for them to receive this honor.”
Other inductees include Terry Tuma, Doug Stange, Perry Good, The Burgers Brothers Sporting Goods.
Official enshrinement will be at the Northwest Sport Show in Minneapolis 2017.
