    “Beats the learning curve” - Before I ever cast a fly, I read this book from cover to cover. Tom is perhaps the greatest teacher of our sport, and the wealth on knowledge contained in this book should be required reading before you ever wet your waders.

    “Great for your older rods.” - Yup I still have and use several glass rods from the late 1970's and 80's. They have a slower action and still perform wonderfully in their realm; creeks and smaller rivers. Light Line is a traditional line for these slow loading rods.
