By Michael Pearce, The Wichita Eagle, Kan. Jun. 22--One angler has spent years refining his approach It only took a few dips of the rod tip and Mike Suitt knew what was in store.

By Bob Frye Rob Walters is not a native Pittsburgher, nor is he old enough to have known Pittsburgh during its industrial heyday, when the mills blackened the skies and turned the rivers orange. But, he's heard the stories. That's one of the reasons why he's still amazed at the number of fish anglers routinely pull from the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio.
