Cousins Tackle Columbia Composite Series Rods

Cousins Tackle Columbia Composite Series Rods

Introducing the new Columbia Composite Series from Cousins Tackle — nine new American-made rods designed specifically for “rod holder” salmon/steelhead fishing techniques. Anglers will find perfectly designed actions for trolling baits and spinners, wobbler fishing, downrigger fishing or anchor fishing with plugs. 

Every rod is based on a lightweight, durable graphite/fiberglass composite blank. Forgiving actions make fish hold on longer, yet are powerful enough to handle large weights and battle big fish in strong currents. Distinctive woven graphite handles slide in and out of rod holders easily, and are durable, easy to maintain and won’t absorb scents. Two cork-grip models also available. Learn more at www.cousinstackle.com.
