Fly Fishing Legends: Jim Hardy (1927–2012)
The last direct link between the legendary fishing tackle company now known as Hardy & Greys Ltd. and the founding Hardy family, Jim Hardy’s marketing efforts and help in developing new materials for fly rods buoyed the flagging firm’s fortunes in the 1960s. Hardy fished all over the world and won three Professional Casting World Championships and set 35 British and All-Comers Professional Casting records.
