  American, Fly Fisherman. 1892-1983. This is the pen name of a legendary angler whose real name is Alfred W. Miller and who was a reporter for the Wall Street Journal.
  He visited the Catskills often, and he was an angler of the golden era of American fly fishing. He was the chief editor of a bulletin published by the Anglers Club of New York, and his magazine articles were collected late in his life in the famous book "Fishless Days, Angling Nights" (1971). Some say that he is the missing link in the authentic chain of American literary humor since Mark Twain. In the cover photograph of the book appears a plump and a truly good-natured old man with a pipe in his mouth.
  After his death, Patricia, his daughter, summarized his letters and writings and published them in the book "An Honest Angler" in 1998.
