The part of the butt section that is held in the hand is called the grip, grasp or handle. On a solid wood rod it is usually a part of the butt joint, simply an enlargement, and may be plain wood, cork or celluloid, and many are wound with hard twine or split cane. They are all good and the angler may take his choice though most of them choose cork, especially for a fly rod, as it will not slip and is not likely to cramp the hand, also is very light and durable.
