Mtn. Home woman to be inducted into Trout Hall of Fame


     The Trout Nature Center Task Force is a group of fishing experts working on the development of the Trout Nature Center, to be housed on the Arkansas State University-Mountain Home campus.   Each year the task force honors individuals who have made contributions to the understanding of trout and the fishing world.   This year, at the 5th Annual Trout Nature Center Hall of Fame Banquet, the task force will honor one of their own when Pat Smith of Mountain Home is inducted into the Trout Hall of Fame.   Smith, who has chaired each of the annual banquets, is the perfect fit for the mission of the Trout Nature Center, according to Steve Wilson, chairman of the task force.
