Default Rod building book on ebay.

For those of you who want to learn, or just collectors, here is a great book that is no longer in print I believe. If it is still in print, you won't get it for the price it's at right now. Thought somebody may want to take a look at it before it's gone.

Dan, great spot. Dale came into my fly shop in about 1992ish and asked if I wanted to sell his rods. His work was/is amazing.

I still think the rod I bought from you is the nicest looking rod I have ever seen. Dale would be proud of your work.

Dammit it's sold!

Thanks Dan for the heads up. I have a small tying book library and of course general fishing Lit, but I don't have any rod building books. But I'd love to start a small collection. I'll keep my eyes out for another.

Bummer. It didn't have a lot of time left when I saw it. Something like 2 hours. I figured somebody on here might want it though so even with the lack of time I thought I'd give it a shot.

I bid on this, but wasn't paying attention and got outbid at the end.

However, Amazon has this book, new, in paperback if anyone is interested:

I was the lucky one that threw up a late bid and got it.

Me and my impulses.
