TFO Fly Rods and Gear
Temple Fork fly fishing gear is the company’s bread and butter. It has an extensive range of fly rods for freshwater and saltwater fishing. The company’s bestseller is the TFO Axiom 2-x. It’s an all-water rod designed for maximizing accuracy at longer distances. The Axiom 2-x is made with high-modulus graphite that provides stiffness with less material. It means longer cases, better sensitivity, increased accuracy, and less hand fatigue. The rod also features a double-helix of Kevlar built in the blank for smoother and faster stabilization, advanced shock absorption, and increased overloading tolerance. Other popular models are TFO Pro 2, TFO Axiom 2, TFO NXT Black Label, and TFO Mangrove Coast.
The company also manufactures fly reels. Take a closer look at the TFO BVK fly reel featuring a fully-sealed drag system. The model is suitable for fishing small and large individuals thanks to a huge line capacity and sturdy, anodized machined aluminum construction. Beginners are welcome to consider the TFO NXT combo.
TFO Conventional Rods
If you’re not a fly fishing enthusiast, the company manufactures beautiful rods for conventional angling. The range includes TFO spinning and casting rods made multipurpose or fine-tuned for fishing a certain species, be it bass, trout, or salmon.
