Reseña del editor:

Learn the science and art of creating a one-of-a-kind bamboo fly rod. Fly fishing has a long and storied history. While many flyfishermen will find and purchase their favorite fly rod, there are those who desire to go a step further. For those discerning flyfishermen and women, simply buying a rod is not enough--they must build one. And just as fly fishing is an art, so is the creation of the bamboo fly rod. Many people believe that the best-feeling rods, particularly for trout fishing, are made from bamboo, and today's bamboo rod-making tradition is particularly indebted to one man: Everett E. Garrison. Using principles he learned as an engineering student, Garrison created an exacting method of building rod--a method that for decades was a well-kept secret. These techniques are presented to the reader in A Master's Guide to Building a Bamboo Fly Rod, a classic volume written by Hoagy B. Carmichael to honor and maintain Garrison's legacy. Completely illustrated with black-and-white drawings and over three hundred and sixty black-and-white photographs, along with copious notes on the mathematical and engineering principles that underlie Garrison's unique rod-making technique, this book will guide you through each step of creating a classic bamboo fly rod. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Biografía del autor:

Everett E. Garrison (1893--1975) was a structural and electrical engineer who developed an exacting method of creating fine bamboo rods. His methods, steeped in the engineering principles he learned during his education, became the standard by which many other rod makers were measured. Mr. Garrison was laid to rest in Ossining, New York. Hoagy B. Carmichael is a world-renowned expert on fishing tackle with more than forty years of fly-fishing experience. The Garrison-Carmichael Rod Shop that he and Everett Garrison built was recently installed on permanent display at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center in Livingston Manor, New York. Carmichael is the author of five books on fishing including Side Casts, 8 By Carmichael, and the classic The Grand Cascapedia River: A History (Volumes I and II). He lives in North Salem, New York.
