The Custom Graphite Fly Rod by Skip Morris features an introduction by Dave Hughes and illustrations by Victor L. Erickson. This compact, practical guide is for everyone who would like to design and build a custom fly rod with graphite blanks to his own specifications.

Skip Morris describes the complete rod building process, from selecting components wisely for specific fishing needs to handsome finishing. There are invaluable chapters on reel seats, cork grips, thread wraps, and adding a signature to your work; and Skip Morris has included an important chapter on how to make all of the repairs that, sooner or later, a well used fly rod requires.

There are also chapters on rod design and advanced building techniques, for the sophisticated rod builder, and an essential section on safety for everyone with a home workshop. The helpful diagrammatic drawings and dozens of carefully framed photographs make Skip Morris's descriptions particularly clear.
