Description
THE SNAKE ROD AND OTHER STORIES FROM THE RODMAKER'S BENCH
Robert L. Nunley
Softcover

Fly fishing isnít just a pastime for Bob, itís a way of life. Itís what he is, what he does, what he loves to speak of & it fills most of every day in various forms. Journey through Bob's life intersections with fly fishing. B&W illus; 6x9 inches, 160 pgs.
Whether itís actually being on the river fishing with bamboo fly rod in hand, at the keyboard writing stories, or in the shop making another fine fishing instrument, Bob lives for fly fishing. Almost as much as he enjoys making rods, he enjoys talking rods, and he loves to give speeches and presentations to fly fishing clubs, civic groups and sporting organizations and sporting organizations.

A bamboo rod maker since 1988, Bobís been a story teller all of his life. Some of this he owes to his Native American heritage, where the tellers of tales and legends are held in high esteem.

Bobís life and career has taken him fishing, hunting, and camping from his birthplace in Southeastern Oklahoma to Alaska and everywhere in between. As noted rodmaker Harry Boyd writes in the Introduction: ďThis book is a passionate collection of stories from the adventures of a maker of bamboo fly rods. There are no how-toís included, but the why of fishing with bamboo resonates from nearly every pageÖRevel with Bob as he shares his enthusiasm for wild trout in wild places. Grow with him as he progresses from a young man with more bravado than brains to more moderate middle age. More than anything else enjoy in this collection of stories an extreme love of life, and love for the people who make up our lives."
