He was quite a character anyway and you missed out by never meeting him.
I suggest you read this 1982 Sports Illustrated article about Jack. The first SI article ever about a fly fisherman.

That was a great article. Sad to hear of such a great angler pass away. As you probably saw from my profile, I live in Brookline myself.
