Since 1983, the Atlantic Salmon Museum’s Hall of Fame has celebrated the many men and women (anglers, outfitters, fly tiers, writers and artists) whose love of the mighty salmo salar has not only enriched their lives but has also turned them into ardent conservationists. The event, normally held in the fall, is one of the Museum’s most popular events and attracts guests from all over the Maritimes and the New England States. The inductees are honored with portraits displayed in one of the Museum’s galleries and many donate a personal memento to our collection.
The date for this year’s Hall of Fame event is Saturday, September 21, 2019.
2018 Dinner and Induction
The Atlantic Salmon Museum takes great pride in announcing that the following individuals were inducted to our Hall of Fame at a ceremony held on September 22, 2018:
EMERY PATRICK BROPHY

The over 125 individuals who were inducted into our Hall of Fame between 1983-2013 are celebrated in a fascinating hard cover book by Morris V. Green, a founding member of the Salmon Museum and now an Honourary Director. The book is entitled 160 Years of Salmon Stories and offers the reader insightful biographies, photos and a wealth of anecdotes, all of which will transport you back “out on the river” after only a few paragraphs. A perfect addition to an angler’s home or fishing camp. The publication (signed by the author) is available from our Gift Shop with all proceeds going back to the Museum.
Nominations to the Hall of Fame are accepted on a yearly basis. Nomination forms complete with a minimum of three letters of support must be submitted prior to July 1.
