Temple Fork Outfitters Fly Rods
Temple Fork Outfitters fly rods are relatively new. These fly rods however, are the real deal. The TiCrX series is unbeleivable. One of their rods (TiCr Series) was designed by fly fishing legend Lefty Kreh. These are awesome rods at a very good price.
My favorites in terms of value and performance. All of Temple Fork Outfitters fly rods come
with no-fault, lifetime, original owner warranty. Read what TFO has to say about their
rods below. If you like what you read, feel free to click on the links to my partner site. You can also read
