Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Celebrates the art of the bamboo fly rod & offers a detailed & memorable portrait of the pleasures of "fishing bamboo." Has a helpful bibliography & lists of reliable rod dealers & modern bamboo rod-makers. A classic intro to bamboo rods & to the subculture of people who make, buy, collect & fish with them. An introduction to bamboo fly rod fishing by a master of the sport. Once an angler masters a graphite rod, his interests often move on to the original fly rod, pliant bamboo. Until the mid-twentieth century, nearly all fly rods were bamboo. By the 1970s, fiberglass and graphite changed the world of fly-fishing. But more and more anglers are seeing bamboo rods in retail outlets, and want to give them a try. With this book, John Gierach, one of the nations top fly-fishing writers, provides a philosophical guide to the angler who seeks this new old method. Gierach discusses how bamboo rods are built, how they differ from graphite rods, and how using one will change a fly fishers approach to the sport. Fishing bamboo might be the pinnacle of fly-casting skill, and this book will help take you there.
