*The Fine Bamboo Fly Rod* by Stuart Kirkfield has become world renowned as THE BIBLE of bamboo rod restoration since it was first published in 1986. The first edition has become a highly prized collector's item with copies selling for hundreds of dollars the past few years through rare sporting book dealers. Many people interested in acquiring a copy have been forced to do without because of the high price and scarcity of the first edition. People have even reported copies missing from public libraries.
So many bamboo rod collectors have been clamoring for the publication of a second edition that The Cork & Cane Press has now made this book available once again at a price that is much more affordable. The highly guarded and long sought information bringing to light all the processes required and secret techniques of the masters are now available once more.
All those anglers who appreciate and revere the lovely and magical bamboo fly rod, and dream of bringing back to vibrant life those old and precious treasures that once belonged to an earlier era will now have the elusive knowledge at their fingertips.From the Inside Flap:
The lore of the fine bamboo fly rod is steeped in mystery. And perhaps the most mysterious aspect of all is how the masters achieve their seeming miracles of restoration and repair.
In this book, the deep and dark secrets - formerly shared by only a privileged few - are revealed in every detail by an acclaimed master of bamboo-rod restoration and repair. Now, anyone willing to follow his advice, can learn to bring fine rods back to full life from the brink of disaster. Rods that previously might have been the source of heartbreak to their owners can now be restored to their youthful liveliness and good looks.
Come along through these pages to the workshop of Stuart Kirkfield and look over his shoulder. Watch and listen as he reveals step-by-step the secrtes that make all the difference.
You learn the fine points of not just relatively simple repairs such as replacing frayed windings but also major undertakings such as repairing delamination damage or actually fixing a break at tip or ferrule. Also the author goes into full detail on varnishing, the aspect of this art in which perfection can seem most elusive.
How are these masterful feats achieved? Not by magic but by the application of specific steps revealed in this book. Photos of critical steps remove the guesswork.
