About this title

Synopsis:

By unanimous agreement, this is simply the best work on the subject ? the definitive book. Mr. Garrison, a mechanical engineer by training, built perhaps the finest rods ever ? and describes how it?s done. He died before the book was first published (in 1977) though his protégé, Hoagy B. Carmichael, completed it and brought it to publication. Essential reading for all who admire fine bamboo rods. A useful section is included on restoration, refinishing and repair as well. Now In Its Third Printing

Review:

"...this is one of the best books you can find on building your own bamboo flyrod." -- Sports Afield Magazine
