Sock-It fabric rod covers resist water penetration, fading and UV degradation, and are made of high-quality, lightweight material. They provide ull protection for a fully assembled rod, or you can insert each rod section, fold it, and place it in a travel tube. Sock-It covers store easily; just roll them up and throw them in your gear bag or boat console. They keep rods from tangling with each other and protect the finish, guides and tips. Covers are available for fly, spin, and plug rods, and retail for $19.95. Sock-It, Marathon Shores, FL; (305) 743-2427; www.fishingstuffbysock-it.com.
