George Hommell, Jr. George was a very early saltwater guide in the Florida Keys, USA. A pioneer of light tackle and among the top guides of the 1950s and 1960s, George created the first bead eye fly, which he ominously called 'The Hommell Evil Eye'. He also co-founded (together with Billy Pate) World Wide Sportsman in Islamorada, Florida where he served as general manager. George teamed with famous baseball great Ted Williams and the two went on to win many tournaments. George was also a founding member of the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust.

The Florida Keys History and Discovery Foundation is pleased to announce that it has received photos and other historical items from the family of fishing guide legend George Hommell, Jr. to be scanned, preserved and displayed.Hommell Bush
Foundation President Richard Russell said, "George Hommell was a much beloved member of our community. Foundation Curator Brad Bertelli said, "Hommell was great because he recognized that there was more to being a fishing guide than landing fish, George proved instrumental in establishing the practices and standards recognized by the sport fishing community today. "A champion of the environment, Hommell was a founding member of the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust whose mission is to conserve and enhance global bonefish, tarpon and permit fisheries and their environment. Along with local legend Jimmie Albright, Hommell worked more than most fishing guides because many of his clients were referred to him by the Miami Beach Rod and Reel Club, a prestigious fishing club established on Hibiscus Island in the early 1930s. "While certainly remembered for his client list, George Hommell is perhaps more importantly remembered for his role in redefining fishing techniques. He also set the bar for the decorum and professionalism displayed by Islamorada fishing guides. Ted Williams used to say that George had the biggest heart in the business, but might have been better known for his keen eyes. Even in a group of guides, George was the first to spot a bonefish. "Hommell was not satisfied with just leaving the dock to accommodate a client. In fact, he was one of the first guides to trailer his skiff in order to find the best possible locale to find a good bite. An innovator, Hommell also was one of the first to design a fly with an eye, a bead eye, and called it the Hommell Evil Eye.
