Learn the science and art of creating a one-of-a-kind bamboo fly rod.

Fly fishing has a long and storied history. While many flyfishermen will find and purchase their favorite fly rod, there are those who desire to go a step further. For those discerning flyfishermen and women, simply buying a rod is not enough--they must build one. And just as fly fishing is an art, so is the creation of the bamboo fly rod.

Many people believe that the best-feeling rods, particularly for trout fishing, are made from bamboo, and today's bamboo rod-making tradition is particularly indebted to one man: Everett E. Garrison. Using principles he learned as an engineering student, Garrison created an exacting method of building rod--a method that for decades was a well-kept secret.

These techniques are presented to the reader in A Master's Guide to Building a Bamboo Fly Rod , a classic volume written by Hoagy B. Carmichael to honor and maintain Garrison's legacy. Completely illustrated with black-and-white drawings and over three hundred and sixty black-and-white photographs, along with copious notes on the mathematical and engineering principles that underlie Garrison's unique rod-making technique, this book will guide you through each step of creating a classic bamboo fly rod.
