BASS FISHING LEGEND GUIDO HIBDON PASSES AWAY
FLW is saddened to learn that professional bass-fishing legend Guido Hibdon has passed away.
Hibdon earned a reputation as a top-notch bass angler on Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri, where he began guiding at the young age of 12. After turning pro in 1980, he went on to win the Bassmaster Classic in 1988 and B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year in both 1990 and 1991. His FLW Tour career culminated with two wins and numerous top-10 tournament finishes. Known as the "Professor of Finesse," Hibdon was the patriarch of the acclaimed Hibdon fishing family, which includes his son, Dion, and grandsons, Payden and Lawson, who all competed on the FLW Tour.
FLW extends its condolences to Guido’s family, friends and fans.
