Modesty prevents me from naming myself so I'll add Henry Abbott to the list.

PaulK are you by chance related to M. Paul Kessler ? I always enjoyed the New York Sportsman magazine when him and his wife were in charge of it . I always saved the centerfold lake maps and still have alot of them.

I never heard of the Flick's being invested at all in the Adirondacks.., rather the Catskills. Same with Lee Wulff down on the Beaverkill.

Lee Wulff lived on the Battenkill. While certainly not in the park, some people do generously include that area when referring to the Adironondacks.

Art Flick lived on the westkill/schoharie which is definitely in the catskills.

Art Flick did fish in the Adirondacks. I know he used to like the Saranac below Union Falls although he is known for the Catskill area.

I recall reading that "Uncle" Alvah Dunning created a new kind of lure (a spoon I think) for lake trout that drove the fish absolutely mad. Eventually the pattern was "discovered" and widely copied making it far less effective. I believe it's still made to this day.

Luker, That guy could hang a spoon or fly while trolling the sunken timber like nobody I've ever seen. He was a hell of a fishing mentor once upon a time. I learned a bunch from him. He's given up trolling brookies now, but damn that guy was good, the best I've ever seen!!!
