More Information:
A Wisp in the Wind
In search of Bull Trout, Bamboo, and Beyond
If split cane fly rods are the spiritual height of fly fishing, then the R.L. Winston bamboo rod shop approaches a mystical place. A Mecca for the few who find their way to Twin Bridges, Montana, most anglers only hear rumors of bearded rod makers bent over benches, illuminated, one would suppose, by a magical ray of Western sunlight. Until now, the heart of their discussions and the secrets of their techniques were only the stuff of conjecture and dreams.

In A Wisp in the Wind, rod maker and dedicated fly fisher Jerry Kustich invites us through the rod shop door and bids us welcome. We meet the craftsmen we've only imagined, free thinking rod makers with humor, dedication, and lively conversation, immersed in the business of beveling cane strips and committed to the ideal that each of us, every angler, is going to have to fight for the future of every trout.

WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING
"Quietly but fiercely independent, free from the commercialism that cloaks the fly fishing world like a fungus, and full of a dozen key skills from a remarkably fresh look at bamboo rods and fine bamboo rod-making to shrewd reading of the water Jerry Kustich gives us a book that sings and sticks."
Nick Lyons, former publisher, and author of Full Creel and Spring Creek
