The Complete Book of Rod Building and Tackle Making Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In its first edition, published in 1993, The Complete Book of Tackle Making became the reference of choice for builders of fine tackle and casual craftsmen alike. It saved countless anglers thousands of dollars, and now, with this new edition—revised, updated, and expanded to accommodate the many developments in tackle making methods, equipment, and materials made since then—it can continue to do so for years to come.

Twenty-seven chapters and helpful appendixes include everything readers need to know about tools, spinners, bucktails, jigs, sinkers, plastic lures and plugs, wire leaders, painting and finishing methods, basic and advanced rod building, basic and decorative wraps, necessary knots and splices, tackle care and repair, suppliers and manufacturers, and much more. With more than eight hundred photographs and clear, step-by-step instruction throughout, this book is the ultimate reference for the tackle tinkerer.

Synopsis:

The most thorough work ever published on making and caring for fishing tackle.
