Default John Merwin

Sadly, John Merwin, long an editor of Field&Stream, author of "The Battenkill" and other books, passed away on Wednesday, February 20th. John was a former exec. director of The American Museum of Fly Fishing. When I took it over, and he very graciously helped me in the early going. He lived just up the road from me. The man knew a hell of a lot about fly fishing, and even more about writing about it.
