Synopsis:

Originally self-published as an elegant hand-drawn and hand-written journal, we are re-releasing this book in full color, while still retaining its unique style.

Review:

This is an extraordinary book a practical manual for hand-building wooden rods, a chronicle of problem-solving, a journal of one craftsman s inventiveness. ...it is infused with the curiosity, learning, trial-and-error wisdom, enthusiasm, and wit of its maker. --Ted Leeson, Best Selling Fly Fishing Author

Every page provides an entertaining and substantive surprise as Betts the fly-fisherman, historian, artist inquisitor, thinker and innovator is revealed. ...an amazing piece of work, a fascinating and instructive pleasure to read. --Harry J Briscoe, Hexagraph Fly Rod Company

It will make a great addition to any angler s library, but its greatest value will be realized in the workshop, gently guiding you through the construction process. --Jeff Wagner, Rod Maker Magazine
