Here are people that I have met (most by e-mail) and indeed some who I have never met as they are away fishing for eternity. Some I believe have had a significant positive effect over the years in the development of ABU Fishing Equipment or passed on significant ABU equipment to a new and appreciative owner. The list includes those who have used, designed, modified , maintained ABU equipment or merely revered it. I am sure the list is lacking and I would appreciate being able to recognize more deserving persons. The list does not specifically reference ABU's founding fathers Carl Borgstom and Gote Borgstrom as they are referenced throughout, but naturally the living legend Len Borgstom is covered in detail here.
