Hall of Fame

John Randolph

Editor Emeritus of Fly Fisherman Magazine, has made world-wide contributions to the sport of fly fishing. Following in the footsteps of his father, who wrote the daily Wood, Field & Stream column for The New York Times, Randolph first came to the Catskills in 1956. In the late 1960’s he began his newspaper career as a writer/editor for a Vermont newspaper and then founded The Vermont Sportsman Monthly. His association with Fly Fisherman Magazine came in 1978, where in a short time he became editor/publisher, a position he held until his retirement in 2009. Beyond his contributions to Fly Fisherman Magazine itself, Randolph wrote numerous fly fishing pieces for other major outdoor magazines and also authored three books. Randolph often brought into his writings not only fly-fishing technique pieces, but also the important environmental impacts that affected waters around the world.
