'A Fly Rod with a Soul' is the title of my upcoming book about the life and work of E.C. Powell, legendary California bamboo rod maker and early pioneer of hollow fishing rods. I would like to have this book available by Christmas 2019, but more likely it will take until the spring of 2020. I plan a trade edition that I expect to sell for a little under $100, a limited, slip-case edition expected to be $200-250, and a deluxe limited edition probably well over $1,000, all dependent on my expenses in producing the various editions. I can say it has been, and continues to be, an adventure and I think the finished product will be worth the years of effort. I hope I can live up to the kindness many people have shown me in accessing information about 'the old man', especially the Powell family. If you think you would like one of the editions, please email me and I will put you on a list and keep you updated as the publication date nears. You can use the contact on this site, or better yet is to email me directly at email@example.com.
