  - Fish Facts: A. J. McClane - a sport fisherman and prolific writer on angling, was the longtime fishing editor of Field & Stream magazine, he also wrote more than 20 books that were standards in their field. McClane´s first book, "The Practical Fly Fisherman," published in 1953, was called the "most comprehensive and useful single volume on all forms of freshwater fly fishing." His 1,156-page "McClane's New Standard Fishing Encyclopedia and International Angling Guide," first published in 1965 and again in 1974, has sold nearly one million copies and remains the premier reference source of its kind.
