Sylvia G. Bashline August 13, 1933 - September 20, 2011

A friend of the outdoors and a noted outdoor writer was lost on September 20, 2011 when Sylvia Bashline passed away at her home. She was predeceased by her husband  James "Jim" Bashline in 1995, also a well known outdoor writer.

Mrs. Bashline was perhaps most known for her excellent cookbooks for fish & game, including The Bounty of the Earth Cookbook and many others.  She served as food editor for Field & Stream magazine from 1976 to 1990 and from 1991 to 1996 as the food columnist for Outdoor Life magazine.

A past president of the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association, Mrs. Bashline also served on the board of the Outdoor Writers of America becoming their executive director in 1984, a position she held for ten years.

Mrs. Bashline enjoyed trout and Atlantic salmon fishing, and ruffed grouse hunting.  In honoring her wishes, her love of the outdoors can be continued through memorial contributions to any of the following:
