In this book, Don shares: the history, including the very first rods; fly-rod design over the years; the use of cane, metal, fiberglass, boron and graphite; the properties of these materials; component design; patent activities over the years; casting; tapering and cross-sectional geometry; and much, much more.You'll find this very detailed book hard to put down. 81/2 x 11 inches.
