1 Harms, Bill & Whittle, Tom Split & Glued By Vincent C. Marinaro
Harrisburg 2007 First Edition Hard Cover As New No Jacket: As Issued Limited Edition Mellema, Kim Signed by Authors
300 pp. In quarter leather in slipcase. One of 150 copies. Signed by authors and illustrator. Foreword by Hoagy B. Carmichael, Illustrations by Kim Mellema. "Split & Glued By Vincent C. Marinaro is the inscription Vince put on each of his fly rods and serves as the title for this book. Harms and Whittle analyze Marinaro’s rods and account for his path to becoming a maker of bamboo fly rods - his design criteria and building practices. Vince Marinaro has long been acclaimed as one of Pennsylvania’s most influential fly-fishermen and authors - a career that was both extensive and varied. In addition to presenting local lore within the Cumberland Valley, Harms and Whittle connect Marinaro’s life and times to the larger world of fly-fishing and the history of bamboo rod-making. This publication was prepared by the authors in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Museum Association and the Marinaro Estate, with a portion of the proceeds to be returned to benefit the museum. Split & Glued looks at Marinao, providing biographical and historical information about Marinaro, his influence on angling, stream (including the LeTort), entomology & fish habits, his founding of the Fly Fisher's Club of Harrisburg, his connections with well-known Catskill & Michigan anglers, his friendship with President Jimmy Carter & his international fishing on the river Itchen & Test. Several chapters are devoted to Marinaro's bamboo rod building, an inside look at his techniques & tools, and specifically the convex taper. 11 original paintings, 225 photographs, 50 drawings, plus charts of all Marinaro's rod tapers.
