Temple Fork’s TFO Drift Fly Rod is the ultimate tool when tight line fly fishing with nymphs. This rod is made using a mixture of TFO’s highest modulus carbon fiber, along with a down-locking reel seat and removable weight fighting butt. It is made to use a 3 weight fly line. You can fine tune the balance using weight washers, depending on the weight of your reel. The tip is sensitive, so you can better distinguish between a subtle take and a bottom tick. The soft tip action protects very light tippets often used to sustain a drift and remain invisible to trout.
The versatility of the Drift fly rod is amazing. It can be fished as a traditional 9’ 4 piece 3-weight. Add a 1’ section to make it a 10’ rod. Add a 27” section and it becomes an 11’ 3” fly rod. Or add both conversion sections and you have a 12’ 3” rod.
The Drift Fly Rod is ideal when using French, Czech or Polish fly fishing styles.
Included is a 3-inch lower cork grip that replaces the weighted fighting butt, for the new micro spey fly lines and techniques.
In case you are wondering, do you have to un-rig your flies, weight and re-string when adding a piece to your rod on-stream? No you don’t. TFO invented and patented a new stripping guide that allows you to put your line through the guide without threading it through. Look at the photo. Amazing!
A special TFO rod case is included with this rod.
