"The most complete and comprehensive book ever written about the 'long rod'. The descriptions of casting mechanics are particularly good. Serious fly fishermen should have this book in their angling libraries". (Doug Swisher). A fascinating book for the technically-inclined fly-fisher which unfortunately has been long out-of-print and has become quite scarce, particularly the hardback edition. Chapters include: The history of fly rod technology; U.S. fishing rod patents; Fly rod manufacturing processes; Fly rod design requirements; Materials properties; Taper and cross-sectional geometry; Component design; Casting the line and fly; The fly rod design process.
