Snake Brand snake guides are made of the highest quality stainless steel. The Original and Universal Snake Guides are manufactured so all the feet are consistent in length. The feet are also straight in line and sit flat on the fly rod, therefore, eliminating tedious twisting, bending, grinding, and filing that not only consume your time but also compromise the integrity of the coating and the stainless steel. In return, you get a higher quality finished product that has saved you time and money. Snake Brand snake guides are a fly rod-building necessity.
