Bamboo Fly Rod Suite by Frank Soos
Book DescriptionAfter he was handed an old, broken-down bamboo fly rod, Frank Soos waited several years before he cautiously undertook its restoration. That painstaking enterprise becomes the central metaphor and the unifying theme for the captivating personal essays presented here. With sly wit and disarming candor, Soos recounts fly-fishing adventures that become points of departure for wide-ranging ruminations on the larger questions that haunt him. Handsomely illustrated with full-color paintings by Alaskan artist Kesler Woodward, "Bamboo Fly Rod Suite" is a distinctive and rewarding book with wide-ranging appeal.

Some look for something larger than themselves, while others get in their cars and drive as if motion alone might offer a solution.
