Excellent grips


As anglers, our hands are nearly always wet somehow. Whether it’s sweat, fish slime or water, keeping a solid hold of your fishing rod can be tricky. I remember years ago when I was fishing the National Championship for college fishing, I lost a dang fish because the rod slipped out of my hands when I set the hook. It was over 100 degrees during that event in Texas and we were all drenched in sweat.

Thankfully, rod grips have come a long way since then. The Jenko Fishing DCVR High Roller comes equipped with an All-Weather Grip that works excellently with wet hands. It almost has a tacky feel to it in dry conditions, too, which feels really nice. The Jenko Fishing logo on the grip is a pretty cool touch as well, I thought.
