More Information
The Whitefish Press is proud to announce a new book co-produced with Hoagy B. Carmichael. Hoagy B. Carmichael is a name that is synonymous with the bamboo fly rod. His seminal work A Master's Guide to Building a Bamboo Fly Rod, written with master rodmaker Everett Garrison & first published in 1977, helped create the "bamboo Renaissance" we are still enjoying today.

The new book 8 By Carmichael: Portraits of Fly Fishing Innovators Ed & Jim Payne, Chauncy Lively, Dr. George Parker Holden, & Vince Marinaro, along with a Short Collection of Stories is a book of essays & articles, some of which were previously published in the legendary The Angler's Club of New York Bulletin & in The American Fly Fisher & have always been difficult to locate. These wonderfully written & witty articles detail everything from the author's relationship to Vince Marinaro & Chauncy Lively to detailed & definitive articles on famed rodmakers George Parker Holden, the author of the influential Idyll of the Split Bamboo, & Ed & Jim Payne.

In particular, the 50-page treatment of the Paynes will likely be the definitive work on the subject for the foreseeable future. Based on exhaustive research, it will serve as a fitting tribute to these masters of the split cane fly rod.

The book is printed in very limited numbers (1000 copies in the First Edition) & will certainly sell out very quickly. It is a beautiful hardcover with a Smyth sewn binding & comes in a Excelin stamped slipcase. Don't miss out on your opportunity to get a copy!
