The Hall of Fame is decided by a panel of four carp angling experts with an interest in history. Each induction involves four nominations from each panel member to form a list of 16 anglers. These are then listed in order of preference by the panel (1-16). The votes are then tallied up, with the top four being inducted. Voting is carried out privately via email and collected by an independent coordinator. It's straightforward, has no outside bias or influences and is a fair system which helps prevent lobbying.
