About this Item

300 pp. In quarter leather in slipcase. One of 150 copies. Signed by authors and illustrator. Foreword by Hoagy B. Carmichael, Illustrations by Kim Mellema. "Split & Glued By Vincent C. Marinaro is the inscription Vince put on each of his fly rods and serves as the title for this book. Harms and Whittle analyze Marinaro s rods and account for his path to becoming a maker of bamboo fly rods - his design criteria and building practices. Vince Marinaro has long been acclaimed as one of Pennsylvania s most influential fly-fishermen and authors - a career that was both extensive and varied. In addition to presenting local lore within the Cumberland Valley, Harms and Whittle connect Marinaro s life and times to the larger world of fly-fishing and the history of bamboo rod-making. This publication was prepared by the authors in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Museum Association and the Marinaro Estate, with a portion of the proceeds to be returned to benefit the museum. Split & Glued looks at Marinao, providing biographical and historical information about Marinaro, his influence on angling, stream (including the LeTort), entomology & fish habits, his founding of the Fly Fisher's Club of Harrisburg, his connections with well-known Catskill & Michigan anglers, his friendship with President Jimmy Carter & his international fishing on the river Itchen & Test. Several chapters are devoted to Marinaro's bamboo rod building, an inside look at his techniques & tools, and specifically the convex taper. 11 original paintings, 225 photographs, 50 drawings, plus charts of all Marinaro's rod tapers. Size: 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 190035
