Toledo Bend was generally regarded as the best bass lake in America in the 1970s and early '80s. Many of the sports early standouts got their starts guiding on Toledo Bend, including Larry Nixon, Tommy Martin, Harold Allen, John Torian and Jon Hall. All but Allen lived in Hemphill, Texas. The Hemphill pros were known as the "Hemphill Gang."
