Fishing Bamboo: An Angler's Passion for the Traditional Fly Rod

by

Fishing Bamboo: An Angler's Passion for the Traditional Fly Rod Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once an angler masters a graphite rod, his interests often move on to the original fly rod, pliant bamboo. Until the mid-twentieth century, nearly all fly rods were bamboo. By the 1970s, fiberglass and graphite changed the world of fly-fishing. But more and more anglers are seeing bamboo rods in retail outlets, and want to give them a try. With this book, John Gierach, one of the nations top fly-fishing writers, provides a philosophical guide to the angler who seeks this new “old” method. Gierach discusses how bamboo rods are built, how they differ from graphite rods, and how using one will change a fly fishers approach to the sport. Fishing bamboo might be the pinnacle of fly-casting skill, and this book will help take you there.
