D on Roberts is a fisherman. Nearly four decades ago, he was lucky enough to marry a kindred spirit. Every year, Don takes Letty Roberts out fishing for her birthday. So when Aug. 12 rolled around, instead of lighting 67 candles, the couple launched their boat at their local fishing hole, Prettyboy Reservoir. Don knows a thing or two about Prettyboy. For 35 years, he fished the reservoir with Duke Nohe, the acknowledged guru who knew every hump, bump and lump where bass hang out. Nohe, who died almost four years ago, could land a bass the way Chuck Yeager landed jets.

Kenneth C. Nohe's short and troubled tenure as director of Baltimore County's Economic Development Commission came to a merciful end with his resignation last week.During his seven months in the job, Mr. Nohe exhibited more of a talent for generating controversy than for creating an economic vision.

Duke died Tuesday morning the same way. "There wasn't anybody who worked harder and longer for Maryland fishermen than Duke Nohe," said Jim Gracie, a founder of the Maryland chapter of Trout Unlimited and former chairman of the governor's Sport Fisheries Advisory Commission.
