Half wells, full wells, and cigar grips are terms one might think would come from a conversation at your local tavern. However, these are also important ways to describe the different cork handles on a fly rod.
Last year, TFO introduced three new fly rods, one of which was the Blue Ribbon series.

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost four years since the Axiom ll fly rod was released.
