When I first started surfcasting, long before the plethera of internet information cut the learning curve for newbie's, I found a book on surfcasting at the local library and it showed me a whole new world about surfcasting. "All About Surf Fishing," by John Fallon. I found the book, informative and challenging despite being slightly outdated (late 80's for me). I recently attained a copy and noticed that you YOU of all people, where a contributor. How well did you know Jack? Is he still around? Was he a good caster?? It sounds to me that he was well traveled. Did you know Les Boyd at all?
