Powell Fly Rods
Powell Fly Rods
have been around for 95 years. Of course they started out making bamboo fly
rods like most of the older companies. Today they make fly rods with some of the most advanced
technology in the industry. Have a look at the Tiboron II series. These rods are probably
the best rods for distance casting available in the industry. These are really powerful fly
rods and worth some serious consideration. See what Powell has to say about their fly rods
below or read some reviews from other
fisherman. If you're interested in Powell fly rods, you can click on the link to go to my partner site the

The snake guides are recoil guides made of a nickel titanium memory alloy that are flexible, yet hard
enough for the toughest conditions and won't corrode in any environment. These guides will return to
their normal shape after repeated deformations that can occur while traveling, banging around in boats
or dropped on rocks. In addition, the stripping guides are made of the same nickel titanium alloy.
