Sometimes a certain book becomes so important in its field that it is considered to be the bible of the subject. So it is with Dale P. Clemens' "Advanced Custom Rod Building", the book that sent American fishermen back to their workshops. Noting practically and philosophically that a rod is an "extension of the angler's hand," Clemens encourages every fisherman to have a rod that is customized for his or her grip and casting style. Clemens explains all of the general principles necessary for making tackle that is superior to anything off the rack, and provides exhaustive figures, illustrations, and tables for the experienced custom builder who wants to fish the perfect rod for his own hand. He shares invaluable advice on how to build rods of every kind, from ultra-light to heavy surf; how to choose (and make) the best blanks, seats, handles, grips, and guides; and how to finish and seal rods to make them as handsome and durable as possible. Stunningly detailed and thorough, "Advanced Custom Rod Building" is a complete guide to building a fisherman's most essential tool and an indispensable companion for any serious angler.
