Good catch
Concerning His Hobbies:

"I have only two. I am an ardent fly fisherman
and hunter. I wouldn't trade a good bedroll by
a blue mountain stream for the best bed in the
Waldorf Astoria.

Wilson fishing
A favorite pastime.

"The sweetest music I have ever heard is the
snake-like buzz of a busy reel, and there is no
feeling like the feel of a trusted rod bent in a
rainbow arch by a fighting trout on
the end of a line.
