Bamboo Rod Making: Making Split Bamboo Bait Casting Rods from Finished Blanks, Bell, Don A.
4 Bell, Don A.Bamboo Rod Making: Making Split Bamboo Bait Casting Rods from Finished Blanks; 1936702339 / 9781936702336, New Book
2012 The Whitefish Press; Limited Edition
As New 8vo Hardcover, No Jacket, as issued
(Description) Limited to 100 Numbered copies. 7 x 5, small 8vo desktop sized. ***(Synopsis) In 1936, a rodmaker with thirty years of experience under his belt took out advertisements in the back of a number of sporting journals. His name was Don A. Bell, and he had just authored a book on rodmaking called Making Bamboo Rods. It was a book unique in the annals of rodmaking. Bell's book was not your ordinary rodmaker's work. Instead, it was an introductory work on one of the most overlooked of all the rodmaker's subjects: the split bamboo bait casting rod. In this work, Don A. Bell showed an appreciative Great Depression audience how to make a superb bait casting rod from a finished blank. With chapters on selecting bamboo, the parts of the two-piece casting rod, attaching the ferrules, winding, varnishing, rod staining, and even determining the weight and length of rods, it contains some charming descriptions of the rodmaker's art. With the text taken from the second updated edition, and with all of the original illustrations reproduced, this slender but elegant little volume may just teach you to appreciate the bamboo bait casting rod, and perhaps inspire you to make one yourself! It will certainly help you to better appreciate, understand, and identify the tell-tale sign of bamboo rods (both fly and bait casting) built by the techniques discussed in Bell's book. Long unavailable to even the most ardent collectors and book hounds, Bamboo Rod Making will now take its place on the shelf of students and historians of rodmaking. It will no longer be one of the forgotten rodmaking texts in history., AB01159.

Fly fishers have always considered themselves the aristocracy of the sport, and a small number of those devotees, a few thousand at most, insist upon using one device in the pursuit of their obsession: a handcrafted split-bamboo fly rod. Meeting this demand for perfection are the inheritors of a splendid art, one that reveres tradition while flouting obvious economic sense and reaches back through time to touch the hands of such figures as Theodore Roosevelt and Henry David Thoreau., U00062.

2006 Random House; 1st Ed, 1st Printing
Near Fine 8vo Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
(Synopsis) In Casting a Spell, George Black introduces readers to rapt artisans and the ultimate talismans of their uncompromising fascination: handmade bamboo fly rods. But this narrative is more than a story of obscure objects of desire. It opens a new vista onto a century and a half of modern American cultural history. With bold strokes and deft touches, Black explains how the ingenuity of craftsmen created a singular implement of leisure-and how geopolitics, economics, technology, and outrageous twists of fortune have all come to focus on the exquisitely crafted bamboo rod. We discover that the pastime of fly-fishing intersects with a mind-boggling variety of cultural trends, including conspicuous consumption, environmentalism, industrialization, and even cold war diplomacy., AB00421.

2010 Anesha Publishing; 1st Ed, 1st Printing
As New 4to Hardcover, in Slipcase
(Synopsis) The new book 8 By Carmichael: Portraits of Fly Fishing Innovators Ed & Jim Payne, Chauncy Lively, Dr. George Parker Holden, and Vince Marinaro, along with a Short Collection of Stories is a book of essays and articles, some of which were previously published in the legendary The Angler's Club of New York Bulletin and in The American Fly Fisher and have always been difficult to locate. These wonderfully written and witty articles detail everything from the author's relationship to Vince Marinaro and Chauncy Lively to detailed and definitive articles on famed rodmakers George Parker Holden, the author of the influential Idyll of the Split Bamboo, and Ed & Jim Payne. In particular, the 50-page treatment of the Paynes will likely be the definitive work on the subject for the foreseeable future. Based on exhaustive research, it will serve as a fitting tribute to these masters of the split cane fly rod., AB01124.

2000 The Lyons Press; Revised Edition
Near Fine 4to Hardcover, in Very Good DJ
(Description) Like new book in jacket with very small chip at top corner. *** (Synopsis) The bamboo fly rod represents the pinnacle of the fly-fishing art: its apparent simplicity and delicacy belie the craftsmanship and strength that are the hallmarks of all great rods. Wayne Cattanach begins in the Kwangsi and Kwantung provinces of China, where Tonkin bamboo takes about eight years to develop the qualities that distinguish it from all other materials: a tensile strength akin to steel, light in weight, with the flexibility that gives all bamboo rods their relaxed action. He describes the process that will take anyone from lengths of hard, raw bamboo to a beautiful finished rod with clear, step-by-step instructions, including how to: find the best supplies; select tools and materials; make and use heat treaters and binders; select rod taper, weight, and action; cut culms; straighten bamboo strips; primary and secondary planing; stagger bamboo strips; give proper heat treating; bind strips; apply finish; mount the reel seat, ferrules, and tip top; and much more. Scores of illustrations and line drawings demonstrate crucial techniques that before this book could only be guessed at, and Wayne's years of experience with pupils and bamboo are brought to bear at every step as his invaluable tips not only instruct, but also explain how to avoid common beginners' mistakes., AB00745.

1978 Winchester Press; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Very Good 4to Hardcover, in Very Good DJ
(Description) Price clipped jacket, else an extremely nice copy of this scarce title. *** (Synopsis) The importance of a fishing rod to the serious angler can hardly be overestimated. It is the extension of his hand, the primary instrument by which he lures, hooks, plays, and lands a fish. It follows, then, that the rod that is handcrafted for the angler, for his preferences and idiosyncracies, for his kind of fishing, is simply going to be more responsive, more enjoyable than a production-model rod, no matter how well made. Few anglers, however, are fortunate enough to have a rod handcrafted for them, and it is for the rest of us that Dale P. Clemens has written this book. Starting where he left off in Fiberglass Rod Making. Clemens draws on his own experience and that of his fellow RodCrafters to explain ways that the average angler can design, build, and embellish a rod that will reflect his desires and his needs. Whatever the material - be it fiberglass, S glass, graphite, or even a bamboo blank - Clemens explains how to select the action, length, and style that suits the appropriate style of fishing, tells how to construct the rod, then proceeds to outline a series of sophisticated wraps and finishing techniques that include chevrons and tartans and diamonds galore - and even methods of weaving your name onto the rod. Anyone who prizes skillful angling and the equipment dial goes with it will cherish this book., AB00121.
