A History of the Rod - 16th Aug 2016

A History of the Rod from the Earliest Period to the Present Time.

When we saw this beautiful book we thought we'd send out a news item calling all keen fishermen.  It seemed the perfect gift for the fanatic angler (don't most families have one?) or a great buy for any enthusiastic fly fisherman.  

Unfortunately not.  All you keen fishermen will have to get on our website and check out our HUGE selection of books on all types of fishing or come into the shop and browse the dedicated fishing section because this book is not what it appears to be.

This book won't interest you unless you also have an interest in flagellation & the flagellants - a bit of a hidden subtitle that we hadn't noticed.  

But if you don't already know, you can learn about whipping, flogging, scourging and hundreds of uses of the rod: discipline in the monasteries, penal flagellation, celestial castigation, military flogging, whipping of thieves, and MORE.  You can see beautiful illustrations of lots of different types of whips or rods and their many and varied uses, including birch in the boudoir.  Not quite your average fisherman's book but something different.
