Near Prattsville in Greene County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Aug. 3, 1904 - Aug. 30, 1985
Dedicated conservationist and sportsman Art loved the Schoharie. Here he helped establish the first "fish-for-fun” area in New York State and secured many miles of public fishing rights. Here he conducted the research for his streamside guide to naturals and their imitations, which introduced generations of fly fishermen to the joys of imitating trout-stream insects. Here we honor a great but humble man who was a source of good will and inspiration to us all.
