About this title


The first book dedicated to telling the story of Tonkin cane.

From the Back Cover:

The classic bamboo rod is the angler's and collector's treasure, and this book is the first definitive treatment of this rod's basic component - Tonkin bamboo. Luis Marden, traveling as the first Westerner to the Tonkin country in a half century, observed and photographed the cultivation and processing of Tonkin bamboo in its restricted growing area in southern China's Kwangtung Province. He includes in this book descriptions and photographs of the growing conditions; the cut and scrubbed culms (stalks) of bamboo; steps in processing; and the final product. The Angler's Bamboo also traces the history of the split-bamboo fishing rod from its beginnings in England to the work of master craftsman Hiram Leonard, who made the American fly rod world-famous. (7 1/4 X 8 1/4, 108 pages, color photos, b&w photos, map, illustrations)
