The Death of Cork

When I was growing up, most fishing rods had cork grips. With the exception of fly rods, we see cork replaced by other materials now much of the time. I haven't seen a single fly rod with substitute materials though. To make the grips on fly rods, cork rings are glued together and then formed to shape on the rod.
