Fiberglass Fly Rods - a definitive guide and very interesting read.

I am very pleased to have been included in this excellent publication about the world of glass rods  Fiberglass Fly Rods by Victor R Johnson Jr is recommended reading for those wanting to learn more about the development and evolution of the modern glass rod.
