Why Snake Guides

Postby Stan Wright » Mon Nov 02, 2009 12:52 am

While setting up our flyrods today my friend ask.....
"Why does this flyrod have guides like a spinning rod?" (single foot guides)
"And my other rod has these swirley type guides" (snake guides)

I had no answer... Usually a flyrod has one or two stripping guides and then the rest are the single wire snake guides. Can anyone shed some light on this?
Aloha,
Stan
