    Book details

Not everyone should own or fish a split cane bamboo fly rod. Some folks are just too addicted to high tech. After all bamboo only offers a fly rod that warms the heart, bounces the summer sun in a thousand different directions and is uniquely in tune with the rhythms of the rivers, streams and lakes it touches. Bamboo’s unique characteristics made it one of the finest choices for the construction of fly rods. Its’ flexibility, recoil and recovery and overall toughness were just the qualities that have traditionally been most appreciated in working fishing gear. There’s just nothing quite like a well-made split cane rod for performance and “feel”. And there's nothing like the satisfaction of bringing one of these classic rods back to life. Hands on advice, tips and instructions for bringing that classic bamboo fly rod back to life. From how bamboo rods are put together to repairing cracks, splits, broken ferrules, cork grip repair and replacement to the do's and don'ts of windings.

    When you close the book after reading it, you think "that's it? !!!... "At £3.50 you would close the book and forget about it.I think that split cane deserves a lot more.

    After reading a few books on this subject, I was disappointed with this issue.Very small, thin, 69 page book, large print, & not enough detail.Just my opinion.

    very basic ,not very detailed, it could have gone through with a actual case study. there was not a lot going for it
