Thursday Review: Bamboo Fly Rod Suite by Frank Soos I usually don't review books that are a decade old although in this case the softcover came out in , but I will make a few exceptions for books I discover ex post facto.
This is one of those circumstances; until Bill Jordan sent me a copy of this book in the mail, I was blissfully ignorant of its existence. It is one of the more beautiful little books on fishing and bamboo rods I've read in recent memory. The book is short 72 pages , concise, and an absolute model for anyone seeking to command the English language. The story revolves around a s Shakespeare Bamboo fly rod that Soos painstakingly restores and then takes fishing. It turns into a voyage of discovery. What place in the fast-paced modern world is there for a bamboo rod constructed over half a century before?
This is the questions he seeks to answer. Along the way, he learns not just about bamboo rods and the culture of fly fishing, but what meaning there is in his act of resurrecting a relic. For what rationale is there in restoring a rod that has no real value? Soos considers buying a new custom built bamboo rod instead.
