First thing I was struck by was how young Jack looked! He was 29 years old at the time the photo was taken, and would have (almost) sixty more years of fishing in him. He knew many famous anglers including the great Paul and Martha Marie Young, fished the numerous rivers around Detroit, and collected a lot of very rare reels. In other words, Jack lived a long and full life.
I wish the same good fortune on everyone during this holiday season.
