Ow"", as the late Fishing Editor of Outdoors was affectionately known to anglers and hundreds of readers of this widely distributed magazine, died last fall. He was a preacher from Wisconsin, a writer who loved to fish not for fish, or for the sake of the catch, but for ""Doubts anodynes and care's surcease"" in so doing. He is never forgetful of the enjoyment of sport, never blinded by techniques and methods, and while there is much valuable fishing lore, it is not a ""how to"" book. This is an easy-going combination of a great angler's philosophy, experiences, lessons and fish stories. It has a combined market, sporting and religious, and a quality of awareness that should be valuable today.
