• Classic book begins with an essay on the allure of fly-fishing • Detailed step-by-step description on how to build your own bamboo rod • 100 black-and-white photographs and author's own illustrations accompany the text • "The reader is assured at the outset that by careful attention to and the following out of the very explicit directions contained in the chapters immediately following, he can contruct not merely a passably-good split-bamboo rod, but a high-grade article that any expert angler would be glad to own -- a rod that will have balance, action, finish, and distinction, and the possession of which will give infinite satifaction to its creator."
Published originally in 1920, this classic fly-fishing book begins with a delightful essay on the joys of angling, then proceeds to describe in detail the steps to making a bamboo fly-fishing rod. There are numerous illustrations by the author to supplement the text.
