Another - who am I :?

I was a founding member of a well known organisation that introduced professional standards in angling instruction.

Although published in many fly fishing magazines I am more commonly associated with another branch of angling.

I am not Ally Gowans.

Good guess - but that's not who I'm thinking of.
An additional hint:
A northern European tackle manufacturer made this chap quite well off by buying out a brand he owned rights to in the UK. That might help figure it out :z17
