Theodore Gordon, America's greatest fly-fisherman, died a recluse on May 1, 1915. He lived his last years in lonely grandeur of spirit in a cabin at Bradley on the Neversink. His monument is the American trout fly; the only remaining collection of them, long lost, was rediscovered in 1954 (SI, Oct. 18, 1954). No one knew where he was buried—all such records seemed to have vanished. This year SPORTS ILLUSTRATED'S Virginia Kraft took up the search again. In lower Manhattan's almost forgotten New York Marble Cemetery, only a flycast away from the Angler's Club, she at last found the place where Gordon was buried. She is shown above at the site with Sparse Grey Hackle, another of Theodore Gordon's devoted admirers.
