Rick Clunn
Gary Klein
Larry Nixon
Jay Yelas

There are lots of great anglers from TX but you asked for the Best. IMO these are them.

Clark Wendlandt has 3 FLW AOY''s
I think


Yes I should have included him. I haven't followed FLW. Nothing against them just haven't followed.

And yes Jay Yelas is from Oregon but he lives in TX now and it fit my argument roflmao

David Wharton should be on everyone's list. It's very regional in Texas though. Terry Oldham and Mike Hawkes were almost unbeatable back in the day in the south. Overall for national and local combined success Faircloth would be hard to overlook.

I had Clunn at top of my list but good to see lots of other names in the mix as well. Not many club level guys represented though. I may not have been clear with my post.
