Fly Fishing Books: Review of Casting a Spell

September 19, 2006 By: Marshall Cutchin

Casting A Spell is a very readable and interesting example of the singular-subject nonfiction genre. Black has the tenacity of an investigative reporter, coupled with a narrative that follows a few distinct paths: fly-fishing in America, the rod builders and their legacy, and his own autobiographical account.” Leigh Montgomery reviews George Black’s recent book on bamboo fly rods in The Christian Science Monitor.
