Item Description...
Once an angler masters a graphite rod, his interests often move on to the original fly rod, pliant bamboo. Until the mid-twentieth century, nearly all fly rods were bamboo. By the 1970s, fiberglass and graphite changed the world of fly-fishing. But more and more anglers are seeing bamboo rods in retail outlets, and want to give them a try. With this book, John Gierach, one of the nation's top fly-fishing writers, provides a philosophical guide to the angler who seeks this new "old" method. Gierach discusses how bamboo rods are built, how they differ from graphite rods, and how using one will change a fly fisher's approach to the sport. Fishing bamboo might be the pinnacle of fly-casting skill, and this book will help take you there.
John Geirach is a master fly fisherman who lives in Lyons, Colorado.

fishing bamboo: an angler's passion for the traditional fly rod  Jul 26, 2008
If you enjoy the feel of a cane rod in your hands then this book will be an home in your hands as well!
The Re-Release of Fishing Bamboo  Oct 29, 2007
While I was hoping that the newly released version of John Gierach's original classic had been revised, I was not disappointed when I read my new copy. The first edition was an outstanding insight into the "cane mystic" and getting a new copy simply gave me a good excuse to re-read it and find out what I'd missed the first time. If you have the original, you don't need the reissue, but if you haven't read it in a while, you may have forgotten how good it was in the first place. Besides, most great literature comes out in a new package from time to time; why should John Gierach's work be excluded?
Wishing for a new tile by Gierach -Reissue from Lyons Press  Sep 30, 2007
While anxiously anticipating the publication of a new title, or at least a new edition from favorite fly fishing author John Gierach, this 2007 book from Lyons press only changed the NEW SUBTITLE from the original one for FISHING BAMBOO by Gierach. Just a warning -not to be disappointed to discover this book is EXACTLY the same as the first edition -with the same old, good advice expected from Gierach. The new subtitle gives the hopeful impression that this book might have something additional from Gierach. Now, if you don't already have FISHING BAMBOO, it is an excellent title for any fishing enthusiasts. First editions are preferred for collections, though. The two star rating was giving for the disappointment, but an extra star over one, for the merit of the original book****
