    Fast Action and Beautiful

      This rod is amazing. Its great for nymphing or throwing small to medium sized streamers. I paired this with a Galvan Rush LT reel and it's a match made in heaven. The rod looks very good in person too. The cork handle is insanely soft as well. Very light rod, only 2.9 ounces, but throws almost any bug. I'm very happy with the rod and would recommend it to any one wanting to upgrade a little. I got this in a 5wt 9'0" if anyone was wandering.

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      After fishing on & off for the past three years and really getting into it this past year, I thought it was time to update the ol' Cabela's RLS combo my dad got me a few Christmas' back.... I had no idea what I was missing out on.

      The fast action on this rod makes for a great responsive feel for casting those dry's to the meaty-est of streamers. Pair this up with a solid fly line (Rio Grand or Gold) and you've got yourself quite a deadly combo.

      Hit me up if you're looking for a reel to pair well with this awesome quiver rod. Went with the standard 9ft 5wt and will be keeping the Cabela's rod for when I have guests visit town that have the itch to fish.

      Once you get the bug it's hard to think about anything else.

      Questions about combinations or looking to get into the sport and wondering where and what gear you need to get your feet wet (in the sport) - hit me up.

      Fish on!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is my second TFO rod and just as expected, it's a great 4wt! Excellent presentation and performance across the board on. You won't find a better rod for the price, and this rod will hang with a $500+ rod any day.

      I Got this rod for my bigger fishing trips and oh man has it caught me some big fish! Pretty light wt compared to other 8 wt's and does it deliver the line shots off the rod great it has a nice pre load feel to it! Highly recommend!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Got this rod for sea run trout variety and salmon in the Puget Sound. It's super fast action and cuts through wind. I did break it once, but only after I had accidentally ran over it with a car, but TFO has a great warranty and actually took care of me!

      Pros: Fast action, great warranty, great for streamers, big dries or casting in windy conditions

      Cons: None!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I've had this in a 5 weight since 2013 (check my review below) and have been pleased with it. I have since purchased a 3 wt butter stick for those shorter finesse casts to spooky fish and typically bring that along when I take the 5 wt out just in case. I just got the 7 wt for those days you just want to throw meat and try to catch a pig. The 8 wt BVK is pretty well documented as a incredible rod at a bargain price (check out Yellowstone Angler's 8 Weight Shootout). The 8 can hang with rods in the $ 800 range, so why not the 7 wt? Living in SLC I don't typically fish big rivers like the Yellowstone or fish saltwater flats for tarpon or bonefish so I decided to try the 7 wt instead of the 8. I haven't been disappointed. I have it paired with a Waterworks Lamson Guru II reel and Scientific Anglers Sonar INT/S3/S5 full sink line for streamers. I also have a spool with SA Sharkwave GPX taper for mousing and carp fishing. The BVK 7 wt can launch the full sink line 'bout a quarter mile (don't quote me on that). It is certainly enough rod for smaller rivers like the Provo or Weber, I can't wait to get this thing on stillwater and the Green.

      Sidenote: While they perform well and have a great price BVK's do tend to break. I broke my 5 wt while double hauling a streamer (the streamer did not hit the rod). Almost everyone I know that owns one has snapped a BVK at some point. The upside is that it costs about $30 to get it fixed from TFO.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I guide fly fishing full time throughout the summer and have always found Temple Fork to make a great rod that won't break your wallet. I got this rod in a 5 wt and so far it has proven to be a great purchase. It is a little stiff for smaller dry fly fishing but for longer casts and heavier rigs it works great. Even throws a streamer with ease. Definitely a great all around choice for a rod if you aren't looking to buy multiple rods. Need to try out the 4 wt next.


        I'm just getting into fly fishing and paired this with the Lamson Guru (http://www.backcountry.com/lamson-guru-fly-reel?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6Z3VydToxOjI6Z3VydQ&skid=LMS0014-TYPS2CLE-S15WEI). I haven't had a chance to try them out yet but they are very well balanced.

        Lots of power.

          I've got this rod in a 690 with fighting butt, or B handle.

          This thing is great. I use it for my streamer rod and it can chunk a heavy streamer a mile. For shorter casts you're a bit over gunned, but that's why they make 3 and 4 weights right?

          In addition to throwing streamers with it I also throw this one on bigger waters like lakes and ponds in the High Unitas and local reservoirs around here. I'll also be taking it to my April drift trip to the Green River in NW UT.

          I've taken it on a camping trip in MT where I wasn't going to fish a ton and it worked pretty well. With smaller stuff I had to position myself at least 30 feet from the seam I was casting into. So if you're looking for a true all arounder the 5 wt would be better

          But as an all-around bigger rod I love this thing. You can throw it a long way with tons of power so the wind doesn't stand a chance.

          All in all its a great rod and I look forward to getting the 3wt BVk as well. This rod family is a winner.

          Lots of power.


          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I initially owned a 9ft5wt rod and disliked the action for a general "all purpose" rod. Picked up the 9ft6wt paired with Rio Grand floating line for streamer and nymph rigs and it totally kills. Definitely a fast rod, but has a sensitive enough tip to feel the rod loading still. Not recommended if you're a newbie, but if you've got some casting experience under your belt this is a great rod. Great for hunting medium to larger browns on the Provo or Weber. As a fast 6wt it is definitely overkill for smaller trout and you don't feel much on the fight with the little guys, so depends on what you're after. Also, not the best rod for dries, but works in a pinch and on a windy day is my preferred rod. Stands up very well to the unexpected gusts where my other rods just buckle. I have yet to take this out on a lake, but it is definitely capable of putting out some line and will likely become my lake rod as well. Overall, depending on what I'm fishing for, this is a great rod and will be my go to rod for streamers, nymph rigs, and windy days. 5 stars, love it!

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Got this rod as my first rod after borrowing spares from friends for the last few years. It was suggested to me by a friend that guides in Montana. Just getting off of a broken arm and have been out a couple times with it. Its not the best for those short finesse casts but for the price I have been very satisfied with what it can do. I have only used Scientific Anglers Mastery Textured GPX taper line with this rod so far, and love what it can do. I have to agree with most other reviewers that no hard case is kind of a drag.

          Great value.

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I've got this rod in a 380 and use it all the time on small creeks. I haven't tried it in still water at all, but it's great for making short casts. Great warranty too. Only complaint is that it doesn't come with a hard tube.

          Best under $300 rod, hands down

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I love this rod. great for nymphing and streamers... super fast action.. Only 2 complaints : It lacks feel for dries if you are making short casts, and it only comes with a rod sock- no hard case. You are going to be looking a long time to find a rod with this power, accuracy, and backbone at this price. another reason I love TFO is their warranties.. you can fish worry free with their rods cuz they'll replace it if it breaks.
