George L. Marzeck Sr., who has the singular distinction of being with the magazine since its inception in September 1967, was lauded in its December issue.

Over those 38 years, Marzeck has contributed countless feature articles on fishing, hunting, camping, dogs, firearms and nature.For several years he penned a full-page column, called originally "Sportsman Corner," then changed to "The Iowa Scene," in the Iowa section of the magazine.
Bass and bluegill fishing and pheasant hunting are his favorite outdoor pastimes, although one of his more memorable moments came with the landing of a 27-pound muskie on a fly rod at Leech Lake, Minn., in 1954.His largest largemouth bass catch stands at 9 pounds, 3 ounces, taken from a 10-acre pond 17 miles from his home.
During his time as a member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America, Marzeck received a number of national awards for his articles, photos and artwork.His outdoor heroes are "Uncle Homer" Circle, former fishing editor of "Sports Afield," and the late Ernie Swift, former director of the National Wildlife Federation.

WEST BURLINGTON - George Marzeck has a love affair with the outdoors.He began fishing when he was five years old, talks to kids about nature and is serious about caring for the environment.But for the last 32 years, his passion has been to get the channel catfish named as the official state fish of Iowa.

Why does he do it?
"It's fun," he said.And the longer it takes, the more determined he is.
Marzeck, 77, has been an outdoor writer for more than 50 years with articles published in Outdoor Life, Field and Stream and Midwest Outdoors.He began his crusade in 1969.
...
"When we have a fish fry, what do they serve," asks Marzeck."Channel catfish and hush puppies."
A bill was introduced again this year to honor the channel catfish.Marzeck will again be watching to see if it becomes reality.
