"You will find Ken Reinard's writings to be a fascinating look at the early history of flyfishing. A very enjoyable and interesting read for both fly fishermen and history buffs. The most thorough coverage of this area I've seen in my 50 years of fly fishing. Ken has done an excellent job of research and presentation." -- Leon Chandler, Cortland Line Company

"Ken has participated in programming here at Colonial Williamsburg, and I have been intrigued with his work. Fly Fishermen are known for their passionate attachment to the sport. Seldom, though, does that passion extend to the history of the sport. Ken Reinard combines his love of angling  with historical scholarship and his devotion to living history. By rediscovering and practicing the eighteenth century art of the fly fisherman, Ken returns to us part of our heritage." -- William E. White, Director, Historic Area Presentation & Tours,
