Voices from the Past: Cal Johnson



Cal Johnson was one of the leading outdoor writers in America, having been named editor of Outdoor America, the magazine of the Isaac Walton League, in 1926. He was a prominent musky fisherman as well, holding the world record for a short time with a massive 67 pound fish. Here is one of his many articles, taken from The Frederick Post, 12 June 1925.

Cal Johnson was also the Fishing Editor of Sports Afield from the early 1930's until January of 1946.
A young fellow who had written a 6-part article on bass fishing in Sports Afield in 1945 took over the position at that point. His name was Jason Lucas.
