In The Letters to Everett Garrison, Author Kathy Scott has taken over 300 documents from the Garrison archives and transformed them into another one of her "Good Reads". In this first time glimpse into to the life of a craftsman who "set into motion a rod making renaissance" Kathy Scott enables the reader to view the human side of the Garrison genius.
As a neophyte rod maker I struggled for years to make a split cane rod using the Master's Guide. Misters Garrison and Carmichael penned a tome of numbers and formulas, procedures, practices and painstaking perfection. At first I was frustrated but as I grew accomplished in the craft I joined the ranks of those who respected and aspired to Mr. Garrison's ability and marveled at his science and insights.
Kathy Scott in "Letters" captures the soul of those who treasured his workmanship, valued his tapers and found a kindred spirit in the man who made rods but also went fishing. If you are addicted to "rent cane" or its history you will enjoy "The Letters to Everett Garrison" by Kathy Scott. Like a vintage, Garrison 212E, this book will become a treasure!" - Ron Barch / Alder Creek Publishing
