Fire Destroys Historic Roscoe Lodge

A landmark of Catskill fishing, the Antrim Inn was being renovated as a lodge and restaurant when it was ruined by fire yesterday morning. “For nearly three decades, beginning in the 1950s, the Antrim Lodge was as much a part of the area’s rich fishing tradition as the famed tributaries that surround it. Sportswriters like columnist Red Smith would take part in the annual ‘Two-Headed Trout’ roundtable on the eve of trout season. President Jimmy Carter, a fly-fishing enthusiast, once ate there.” Victor Whitman in New York’s Times Herald-Record.
