(Synopsis) Bogdan reels are the Rolls-Royce of the fly-reel industry. Know for their impeccable performance, endurance, and superb craftsmanship, these reels have landed everything from trout to tarpon. If a Bogdan reel goes back to the maker for a repair, it's usually something like replacing the original 30-year-old crank handle, worn out from decades of intense use. The two-year waiting list for a Bogdan is who's who of the rich and famous, including businessmen, royalty and sports superstars. The List is impervious to bribes and sob stories...no one jumps to the front of the line. The man behind these world-class reels is quiet and modest, with a fascinating history that goes back to the 1930s, when the flagship New York City Abercrombie & Fitch store was strictly a high-end sporting goods store. This fascinating autobiography of the man and his reels is beautifully written and full of history, including important photographs, correspondence, and stories from Stan and his fiercely loyal clientele. This book is a must for all Bogdan reel owners...and for those of us who can only dream of it.
