(Synopsis) Bache Hamilton Brown was the father of spin fishing in America, the country’s first importer, manufacturer, and promoter of a style of angling that has become the dominant form of fishing in this country. He was one of the most important people in our country’s fishing history, even if he does not always get the recognition that he deserves. Here, for the first time, Robert Halver details the life and career of this important figure, from his childhood in Europe and America to his discovery of spin fishing in the 1920s to the formation of the first spin tackle company in the nation’s history to the design and manufacture of the first American spinning reel. He was widely acknowledged as THE spinning expert during his lifetime. The book is divided into three sections: the first covers his introduction and promotion of spin fishing in America, from 1935-1955. The second contains the detailed history of Bach H. Brown fishing tackle, including the first spinning reels made in America (Bache Brown Luxor), his Airex Equip. Corp. tackle, and finally his Ariex/Div. of Lionel tackle. Finally, there are detailed appendices including his entire 1949 daily fishing diary, some of his writings on spin fishing, detailed biographical information on his family, and a collection of original letters to and from Brown.
