Default Woolner Brothers

Saltwater Classics
by Frank Pintauro and Ed Poore
Catching Up with Jack Woolner
They were World War II heroes, sportsmen, conservationists, publishers, producers, television personalities, editors, wildlife film producers, photographers, fishing lure manufacturers, tackle shop owners, writers, and great all-around outdoorsmen! A.J. Campbell referred to them simply as “The Fabulous Woolner Brothers,” and it would take a book to tell their story. Sons of Martha M. Matthews and Frederick L. Woolner, the Woolner Brothers were Ted (Frederick), Frank (Francis), Jack (Ralph) and Dick (Richard); together
they blazed new trails during a time when surf fishing was in its infancy, a magical time referred to as The Golden Age of Surf Fishing.

Master striped bass fisherman Arnold Laine, who died in 1992, was a “Cape regular” who fished with the Woolner Bros. surf crowd.
