Living Georgia fly fishing legend, Gart Merriman is the Owner of The Fish Hawk, in Atlanta that opened in 1974. A lifelong advocate of fly fishing for trout in the Peach State, Merriman's crowning achievement occurred Hawaii when he landed the largest Blue Marlin caught by a single angler (1,649 lbs). As the millions of people say, "Gary knows where to go, what to use, and how to make a fly fishing trip all come together."
