A classic work, with careful and explicit illustrations: a unique celebration of a sporting implement that attains the status of a work of art. Garrison worked extensively with Carmichael but died before the book was published. Here in the uncommon deluxe issue, which Carmichael has warmly inscribed Rudy Coigney, fisherman, book collector, and bibliographer of Izaak Walton.
