About the Author
Tom also collects antique tackle, which he describes in detail in one of the chapters. He's considered a walking encyclopedia who has experienced everything from being struck by lightning to landing three 30-pound snook in a single night - back when the limit was four "limit fish" apiece. Celebrated for his knowledge of all things fishing, Greene literally "learned from the legends," while making it a point to fish with the best. He's proficient with all types of tackle, from world-class tournament gear to massive rigs used to reel in black marlin - something he's done on his many travels.
A long-time resident, who remembers "how it was," Tom was recently honored by Boca Raton Magazine as one of Florida's "original crackers."
