Well, I splurged a little this week and I am glad I did. JUst had to sing a few praises to the folks making the TFO rods. I usually build and fish my own flyrods but I talked to a friend of mine that runs a local Fly Fishing shop and he encouraged me to "just take it out back and cast it for a minute or so, let me know what you think of it"!! Thirty minutes later I am walking out the door with a new TFO 8'6" 4 pc 3 wt. That was yesterday afternoon and today I could hardly wait to get home and see if it felt as good today as it did yesterday and lo-and-behold, it does. What a real sweet casting rod, I can't say enough good about it! Can't wait until Saturday when I have a chance to fish it!! Nice job Temple Fork!!
