Joe Brooks goes back further than the 60's. He wrote the first authority ,atleast as to Saltwater flyfishing, in 1950. He had been flyfishing well into the 1930's. The first real publisized "Light Tackle" saltwater fishing was promoted by the exploits of Zane Gray from 1910 to 1930... In his book "Tales of Fishes" he advocated fish conservation and the true sport of ligh tackle for biggame.
