ABOUT THE BOOK

Jerry Girard is an angling historian and collector of note who has penned a number of works on fly angling history, including articles for The Art of Angling, the American Fly Fisher, and the 50 columns collected here for the Castabout, published by the Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum. He co-authored F.E. Thomas: The Man & His Rods with Robert D. Stewart. Casting About contains all 50 of Jerry Girard’s “History, Museums & Collections” column published in Castabout, the newsletter of the Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum. Taken as a whole, they tell not just the history of fly fishing and fly rods, but more importantly, how they bring us together. Because it’s the connections we make and the experiences we have that matter far more in the end. These articles contain facts and histories of everyone from Fred Thomas to Eustis Edwards to Hiram Leonard. So much great fly rod and fly fishing history! Of note is the first detailed article on the guns manufactured by noted bamboo fly rod makers, including photos of the firearms from Jerry's personal collection. A must read! This Limited Edition and signed and numbered and limited to 100 copies.
