Field and Stream

A.J. McClane

- — D.E.P.

was The Compleat Angler brought to life. He knew more about fish and fishing than anyone I can call to mind. He was also able to write about it better than anyone else, and he excelled at the unglamorou­s art of how-to. A.J. knew that the secret to writing great instructio­nal prose is not to make it sound like instructio­nal prose. Read what follows and tell me it sounds like informatio­n. I should add that he was one of the nicer guys ever to flog a stream.
