A Fishing Rod Inspired by Dee Thomas
The Father of Flipping

In the 1970’s Dee Thomas had an idea on how to improve his catch while bass fishing. This idea was called “Tule Dipping,” a unique where he “flipped” his fishing rod. Soon after, Dee Thomas started winning local fishing tournaments. Major sponsors helped Dee Thomas execute his idea for Tule Dipping fishing pole. Specialized fishing rods originally designed for Tule Dipping were built and refined by Dee Thomas. Now a new technique emerged in the industry that would forever change how bass was caught. Zombie Rod & Tackle and Dee Thomas collaborated to produce a well-balanced fishing rod optimized for Tule Dipping and versatile for all sorts of fishing styles.

Dee Thomas’ Anti-Tangle Guides & Superior Tip:

Dee Thomas’ Anti-Tangled guides were designed to reduce line tangles when casting, flipping, tule dippin and punching. With most other guides, the line tends to catch on the bottom supports where the guides meet the fishing rod. These snags occur frequently during casting and active reeling techniques.

Dee Thomas’ patented design features double footed guides that allow the the line to flow at an optimized angle, far from the footing. The result is less tangles and more time for casting, flipping and tule dipping.


Made in the USA with Utlra strong and light weight 316 “marine grade” stainless steel, these guides will endure the casting, reeling and everyday outdoor environment of the active angler.guides-sidewise-black
