Chip Leer named interim director of Fishing HOF

To aid in bringing the Minnesota Fishing Museum and Minnesota Fishing Hall of Fame (HOF) together, longtime Minnesota guide and noted fishing personality Chip Leer has been tapped to serve as interim director of the Hall of Fame.

Based in Walker, Leer operates Fishing the WildSide, a sports marketing and communications company that works with a number of fishing industry allies.

“This is a rare opportunity to solidify the history of fishing in Minnesota, and recognize those who’ve had an impact within the state and on a national level,” said Leer.
