The Angler's Bamboo

by Luis Marden

Previously owned- in very good shape!

The classic Bamboo Rod is the angler's and collector's treasure, and this book is the first definitive treatment of this rod's basic component - Tonkin bamboo.

Luis Marden, traveling as the first Westerner to the Tonkin country in a half century, observed and photographed the cultivation and processing of Tonkin bamboo in its restricted growing area in southern China's Kwangtung Province.

The Angler's Bamboo contains descriptions and photographs of the growing conditions, the cut and scrubbed stalks of bamboo, the steps in processing, and the final product.
