I am in contact with the publisher about the book and will ask about its availability. I am negotiating permission to publish a few of the illustrations on the Spey Pages.
I don't know if Nobuo's rods are available over here--I'll ask him. Mine arrived last week and they are light and powerful with a classic Spey feel and action. I've been casting a lot of faster action rods the past few years and it is great fun to swing a traditional rod again. I'll be doing a complete review of them on the Spey Pages later this summer.
