IMO, at this time, Fiberglass Fly Rods is a must have publication for anyone that collects and/or is interested in "Glass Fly Rods".

Absolutely a fantastic value if you are into fiberglass fly rods. Worth four times the price. Details major fiberglass fly rod manufacturers from the days when they were popular. A fantastic reference, worth every penny and much more!

As a researcher I appreciate the primary source information that the Johnsons' took the time to gather. The facts presented exhibit more accuracy than some accounts I have seen published for the various players involved. Where one is left wanting more, it is because the authors' chose only to present reliably corroborated information rather than conjecture. A remarkable job of intertwining all the threads of who, what, when, and where.

Probably will wear out this book over time because I refer to it often. It is a gem. The history of fiberglass fly rods is fascinating. It's all here. The amount of research required to write this book is more than impressive. I believe that even fly fishers who don't go with fiberglass would enjoy the heck out of this book. There is nothing like it.
