In this special two-books-in-one series, George Barnes writes about early construction theories of bamboo fly rods and how the process has evolved over time.

 

In book one, How To Make Bamboo Fly Rods, George explains, in simple, concise terms, his procedures and early construction theories.  Many current rodmakers credit Barnes with contributing to a rebirth of bamboo fly rods.

 

Book two, entitled Fly Rods Galore, is the sequel, and presents 25 years of changes in the rodmakers’ art.  Book two is filled with innovative theories, helpful tips and interesting sidelights and ideas not found elsewhere.

 

Certainly George Barnes’ thoughts and theories will generate opposing viewpoints, both from novice as well as contemporary master craftsmen.
