In the company of angling legends, BTT members, partners and friends, BTT inducted Bass Pro Shops founder and CEO Johnny Morris, the late President George H.W. Bush, and the late Captain George Hommell, Jr., a pioneering Keys fishing guide, into the Circle of Honor on April 21, 2022, at the 9th Annual Florida Keys Dinner in Islamorada.
Morris was honored with the Lefty Kreh Award for Lifetime Achievement in Conservation. As a founding member of BTT, Morris’ longstanding support has made possible important flats research, youth education programs, habitat restoration projects, and disaster relief for fishing guides and coastal communities in the Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian. BTT and attendees also paid tribute to the late Capt. Joe Gonzalez, Capt. Travis Holeman, and Capt. Billy Knowles.
BTT thanks Andy Mill, Jeb Bush, Jr., M.E. Hommell, George Hommell III, Capt. Rob Fordyce, Capt. Will Benson, and all those who attended this memorable event benefitting the BTT George Hommell Florida Keys Habitat Fund.
