Stan Gibbs…Legend and Man

Gibbs Striper Fly

“Don recalled the first time he met Stan Gibbs was when he came into the shop to weigh in a huge eight-pound sea run trout Gibbs caught in a local estuary. Stromeyer said that during all the years he knew him, he doesn’t recall Gibbs ever bringing a striper into his scale, but he did see plenty of the muskrats and mink that Gibbs trapped in one of the ponds directly across from the shop in Buzzards Bay. According to all accounts Gibbs was a throwback to the old timers who lived on the Cape and according to those who were fortunate to have known and fished with him, he was the consummate outdoorsman. “
