Author: Dennis O. Freeman
Publisher: Dennis O. Freeman, Jul 2010
Author shares 20 years experience custom rodbuilding & mentoring. He also shares fun & hilarious hunting, fishing, & life-stories as an outdoorsman & storyteller. B&W photos; 6x9 inches, 212 pgs.
A 212 page instructional on custom rodmaking that takes the reader step by step, just as Dennis has for nearly 1,000 others he has taught the craft during the past 20 years. This book describes in detail how 'The Rodmaker' builds a Sage 590-4 Z Axis Freshwater Fly Rod; a Sage 1090-4 Xi 2 Saltwater Fly Rod; a 7 foot St. Croix Casting Rod; and a 7 1/2 foot St. Croix Spinning Rod.
In CUSTOM RODMAKING AND OUTDOOR ADVENTURES, Dennis tells of hilarious adventures he has experienced hunting and fishing, and of many life lessons learned, in 50 different short stories from humble beginnings to a life of custom rod making.
A great read for anyone that enjoys the outdoors, and that has 'been there, done that', only it is doubtful if any reader has shot a small herd of cattle on a debt collection; hunted wolves in the far, far north commercially; loaded up an unruly guest on a commercial airliner flying him 'one way' to Anchorage; tried to land a certain world record Northern Pike with a broken hand; landed the largest Lake Trout in all of Canada over a two year period; spent 6 weeks in Alaska traveling without reservations or agenda, with humorist and past president of the National Outdoor Writers of America; Gulf Coast Bed and Breakfast operations, and many more.
