Excerpt from Anglers and Muscleheads

IN an age of specialists Captain Torn Gifford has conformed to the trend. There may be a few who have fished with him during his half-century as an offshore guide who will insist that this represents Tom's sole gesture toward anything remotely resembling conformity.

Tom Gifford is a specialist in the broad field of big-game angling and is generally recognized as the number-one man in that field. He attained this stature as a result of his stubborn refusal to accept any angling practice until he had experimented with others. Many of the methods and practices and much of the most valuable equipment employed in big-game angling today can be attributed to his efforts.

The offshore angler who is accustomed to an indifferent, bored, and routine-bound guide will be rather awed and per haps intimidated by Gifford's intense and concentrated attitude. Once outside the inlet or harbor his eyes are never still. They sweep constantly from the cockpit to the tackle, the angler, the sky, and the water. They note the activity of every bird.
