bad trout, good striper

i hate my TiCr X 6 weight.

i love my friends signature 9 weight.

rooster Hey,
TFO rods are great. My backup for my 9' 9wt Sage is a 4 piece TFO. Damn fine rods and you can't hardly build one for what you can buy one for.
Certainly fine for the Capes' stripers!

fly fishing is more than just trout

If you think fly fishing is just for trout, you need to broaden your horizons -- Fly fishing can be used for almost every kind of fish.
Bass are great on a fly. Down in Florida they are great for snook, baby tarpon, redfish, bonefish, barracuda, and even shark. I've used mine in Hawaii to catch all kinds of tropical fish, and am now in Maine using them to catch striped bass.

Don't fall into the trap of thinking fly fishing is just for trout or you'll become one of those who feel fly fishers are "elitists" -- we're not, we're just average joe's having a good time.

golf_N_ducks I am new to fly fishing. I was told to get a TFO rod to start with. So I did. It works great for me. Another good thing about them, they have a "free" repair service on their rods. Youi just pay $25 fo shipping and handleing and they will repair the rod and send it back. Lucky for me their office is less than a mile from my work. I had broken my. Called them up and asked if I could just come by and drop it off. They said come by. So I did and they replace the broken section for me right then for NO CHARGE.

I will probably never fish more than 20 -30 days a year (just don't have trout much in Texas) so I will probably always buy TFO rods when I get a new one.

I have a 9wt and 7wt and am happy with their performance, although I don't have much to compare them with.

TFO Pro Series verses the Series One

How does the Lefty Kreh Pro Series compare with the Series One? I think I would be interested in the 9 foot 5#. How do they differ?

FLGator TFO's TiCr X and TiCr rods offer a great fast action value. Most average to better than average casters will find this offering doing everything a single handed rod needs to do in any situation. Great service from a great company with a great warranty. I personally am a big fan of the TFO series of rods.

chromer Every company has its gems and its dogs, TFO is no different. Some of thier rods shine while others don't. I own the Lefty Kreh series and love them. For me I sometimes buy from the top shelf and other times I go best value. One thing for sure it's great to have the option thanks to TFo.

Dble Haul I think that the TFO rods are perhaps the best value for the money on the market. They could easily be 50% more in price, and are comparable to some of the mid-range rods out there.

flytyer tgblueridge,

TFO are good casting rods at a fairly low price. They (like the Echo, low-end St. Croix, Redington, etc.) have enough performance to keep beginning and intermediate fly casters and fly fisherman very happy. Heck, I suspect average fly fishers who only fish 20-40 days/year (i.e. 10 weekends to 20 weekends in a year, or 2 days/week for 10 weeks to 20 weeks/year) could be pretty satisfied with the performance of them the rest of their days.

However, for those who fish over 50 days/year with many years experience; those who are skilled casters able to get the most out of their equipment; and/or those who have been fly fishing more than 10 years, the high-priced, high-end rods are a better choice because the performance of the low-end rods will be exceeded by their abilities. But then again despite my 47 years experience fly fishing, who am I to say TFO (or some other low-end rod) is not the equal of high-end rods in terms of performance?

TFO the real deal

Last year I bought a series one 8 weight as a spare rod for Coho season liked the rod so much I bought 2 Ticrx models 8 and 6 then went out and picked up a 14 foot nine weight two hander. I like the progressive taper which allows me to roll cast tips to the surface pickup the line and send it on its way with one backcast. Most people that have tried my rods say they are cannons and cast effortlessly. These rods compete with the highend rods in performance at a fraction of the price.

Temple Fork Rods

I have read a lot lately about Temple Forks Rods. I went to a dealer near my home, and I was stunned by the price. Are they as great as they seem, or are they worth about what you pay?

Thanks.
