About this title


A finely tuned portrait of the pleasures of fishing with a bamboo rod, by the author of Trout Bum.


Whether you're interested in fishing or collecting bamboo fly-rods--or you simply enjoy good outdoors writing--you'll find it all in this paean to the slightly arcane world of the bamboo enthusiast. There's enough information here for those in need of an overview, including chapters on the history of bamboo rod-building, the master craftsmen of the past, and types of rods, plus the usual assortment of folksy wisdom and well-turned phrases that one expects from the author of Trout Bum and Sex, Death and Fly-fishing. Appendixes include listings of current manufacturers and dealers of bamboo fly-rods.
