Reviews - What do our customers think?
true rod building passion  Mar 8, 2006
Mr. Garcia has extended his love for the craft through this most passionately written and photographed masterpiece. A must have for the novice and the seasoned professional.
Beautiful rods & photographs...  Jun 13, 2002
LA Garcia looks to be one of the premier rod builders out there. The photographs are spectacular and are not lacking. The only area lacking in my opinion is in instruction. I still had many questions after reading this book. It is helpful in the craft, but other books and instruction (preferably from an experienced rod builder) will be required for building rods. Tom Kirkman's book is much more thorough.
Beautifully done  Dec 16, 2001
The layout and photographs of this book are beautiful. Ritzy flyrod shops should have this one lying around for people to read and admire. In general it is a very good introductory book on building a graphite fly rod and I built one using it. I did find the explanation of how to determine the rod blank's spine to be confusing. However, there are several good explanations of rod spine on the net. It has a good description of how to do a two color thread wrap, that is, a one color main wrap with a different color accent. Mine looks mighty nice, cobalt blue accented with gold on a charcoal blank. (St. Croix SC-III 6wt. 9ft.)
Great Step by Step Color Photos  Aug 7, 2001
LA Garcia does a great job of taking you through the way he builds rods. Close up photographs are great, and the chapters are in sequence of building the rods. He has a great section on all the materials needed too. Garcia includes equipment made of materials at home along with more expensive store bought rigs. He does fail to go into detail the differences between guides (single foot, hialoy,silicon carbide guides) and why NCP thread doesn't meet his standards. I actually found consulting the internet on assembling alternatives easier (material written by a gentleman named Al Campbell).
Best book on the subject ever written!!!!  Jan 22, 1999
I have made several graphite fly rods for myself and my children and every one has turned out beautifully. The simple, easy to follow instructions and clear photos make this book a "must have" reference. My Loomis blanks turned out easily as good as the factory rods in finish and I have the satisfaction of knowing I did the work myself. Plus, I saved about 50% on the cost. I customized the rods for each of my kids so they each have a unique, hand crafted rod with Dad's signature on it. Great book, no question about it. Buy it!!
