There are also 2,000 mills, of stf'am

When Mr. Hardin gut -through

more mountainous than the Adiron

region which hasn't been exploited.
We also found out a few pointers
on fishing, while we had such an ex
pert at interviewing distance. S
we asked a few questions about rods
annd flies and such. Mr. Hardin
makes his own flies- both body: and
hackles. Even the feathers are home
grown, because he raises his own
chickens. He has had the best lutk

a gray one and a yellowish one. The
gray one comes from his Plymouth

His best rod, Mr. Hardin told us';
is a five-ounce rod, made by Alby &
Imbrey, an old firm in the game, but
a rod no longer obtainable. With it
he has caught trout as long as 25
inches. The record for that region is
