ABOUT THE BOOK
The Whitefish Press is proud to announce a new book co-produced with Hoagy B. Carmichael. Hoagy B. Carmichael is a name that is synonymous with the bamboo fly rod. His seminal work A Master's Guide to Building a Bamboo Fly Rod, written with master rodmaker Everett Garrison and first published in 1977, helped create the "bamboo Renaissance" we are still enjoying today.
The new book 8 By Carmichael: Portraits of Fly Fishing Innovators Ed & Jim Payne, Chauncy Lively, Dr. George Parker Holden, and Vince Marinaro, along with a Short Collection of Stories is a book of essays and articles, some of which were previously published in the legendary The Angler's Club of New York Bulletin and in The American Fly Fisher and have always been difficult to locate. These wonderfully written and witty articles detail everything from the author's relationship to Vince Marinaro and Chauncy Lively to detailed and definitive articles on famed rodmakers George Parker Holden, the author of the influential Idyll of the Split Bamboo, and Ed & Jim Payne.
In particular, the 50-page treatment of the Paynes will likely be the definitive work on the subject for the foreseeable future. Based on exhaustive research, it will serve as a fitting tribute to these masters of the split cane fly rod.
The book is printed in very limited numbers (1000 copies in the First Edition) and will certainly sell out very quickly. It is a beautiful hardcover with a Smyth sewn binding and comes in a Excelin stamped slipcase. Don't miss out on your opportunity to get a copy!
