Publisher Comments:

"Informative, well-written. It covers the subject of rod building in a concise manner. It should be in every rod builder's library."—Fly Fisherman Dale P. Clemens's Advanced Custom Rod Building is the book that sent American fishermen back to their workshops. Clemens believes that, both practically and philosophically, a rod is an "extension of the angler's hand." Accordingly, Clemens explains the principles necessary for making custom tackle that is superior to anything off the rack, as well as exhaustive figures, illustrations, and tables for the experienced builder. The book contains invaluable advice on how to build rods of every kind, how to choose (and make) the best blanks, seats, handles, grips, and guides, and how to finish and seal rods to make them as handsome and durable as possible. Stunningly detailed and thorough, Advanced Custom Rod Building is a complete guide to building a fisherman's most essential tool. 168 b/w photos and illustrations, 29 color photos.
