(fullWells grip  English
  A grip design of a fly rod designed by Henry Wells. It was shown in his book "Fly-Rods and Fly-Tackle" (1885). This grip has three thick parts, one each at the front end, the center, and the rear end, resulting in two constrictions in the grip. It is a popular grip design that is used on many rods, such as Winston, Powell, Young, Uslan, Montague, Phillipson, Hardy, Sharpe, and Howells.
  Wells was a fly tyer and the famous Parmacheene Belle is his original pattern.
