Winding a Fly Rod
The rod should be wound at intervals of not more than an inch and a half at any part, and much closer than that toward the tip end. Windings of some shade of red are very satisfactory, as this color is less liable to fade badly than some others. A very pale green is also Windings. a g00cj color. Plain windings are to be preferred to two-color windings since they are easier to renew. Rods are made " solid-wound," that is, the entire rod is wound with silk; they are not, however, a success, being too soft. Avoid any freak or fancy windings. The very best fly-rods are "as plain as an old shoe."
