Eight Points of Light chronicles the lives of eight people that changed fly fishing and never got the credit they deserved for their efforts.
Doctor Todd Larson said the following about the book:
“The eight figures covered are Theo Bakelaar, Art Nuemann, Tom Whiting, Jim Green, Hal Janssen, Myron Gregory, Dick Posey, and Pudge Kleinkauf. Between them, they span the breadth of post-World War II fly fishing, covering such subjects as bead heads, advanced fishing techniques, tournament casting, and yes, fiberglass fly rods. Without digging in to the individual chapters (each is like its own separate gem filled with delightful bits of information on nearly every page), I will say this is a book anyone interested in fly fishing will want to own. In addition to the book, there is an optional DVD that contains audio and/or video on each of the eight people."
