Spine Of The Rod

John Ange finds and marks the spine of every rod section produced in the Thomas & Thomas factory in Greenfield, Massachusetts. The line guides are aligned on the stiffer spine side. To find out more about why the spine of a rod is important, and to learn how to find the spine of your rod black, see the 2018 Fly Fisherman Gear Guide (On Sale now nationwide).
