A nice article from Coastal Angler Magazine, originally published in July 2015 by Don Norton:
"Ask a fisherman who was the greatest fisherman of all time and they will probably say Roland Martin, Bill Dance or the incredible Kevin Van Dam. Others might include lesser known fishing celebrities local to their areas, but few would mention Elwood “Buck” Perry, from Hickory, North Carolina.
Born in 1915, Buck never won a fishing tournament (because he never fished one); never had a TV show or radio program, or even a newspaper column; but he had the keen, analytical mind of a fisherman trained in scientific principles who constantly asked the question “why” and then sought out the answer."
