1977 Martha's Glen Publishing Co; 1st Ed, 1st Printing
Very Good+ Hardcover, in Very Good+ DJ
(Description) Previous owner blind stamp and signature on back endpaper. Very slight bumps to DJ spine ends, and small (nickel-sized) stain at top of DJ spine 1 inch repaired tear at top. A very nice copy of the true first printing of this book. ***(Synopsis) Few who practice the fine art of flyfishing know anything about how their prize possession, their bamboo rod, was made or have ever considered making one themselves. This book explains in meticulous detail how one can follow the steps as laid out by the master of the hand made bamboo rod, Everett Garrison. The book begins by taking the reader through the many stages one needs to understand in order to build a bamboo rod. Over 370 photographs are included along with many illustrative and technical drawings. Next is the section on rod repair which includes several concepts which Garrison never divulged while he was alive. Following that is the chapter on rod taper design which is without question the most comprehensive work on the subject in print and a complete guide to anyone wishing to design his or her own fly rod. Finally there are listed many of Garrison's most popular rod tapers; something no rod maker has ever allowed to be published heretofore. With this book one has the first serious work written on the subject of bamboo rod building in over 25 years. The book is unusual in this world of fast foods and deteriorating craftmanship and shows the kind of care and devotion to the subject that Everett Garrison put into his rods., U02212.
