By Victor R. Johnson & Victor R. Johnson, Jr. Foreword by Leon Chandler of Courtland.
This in-depth book, by a father and son writing team, has been well researched and documented, and presents the first historical perspective of the people and companies involved in the dynamic Post-war transition of the American fishing rod from the days of bamboo rods into the modern era of synthetics: fiberglass and graphite. A valuable resource for classic tackle collectors and interesting reading for all fishermen. 8 x 11" with 176 pages; illustrated with old b&w photos, reproductions of old magazine ads and catalog pages.
