    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my first slower-action rod I have ever fished, and I has been a great experience. The "traditional" action allows for incredible dry-fly presentation and super easy roll casts in tight areas. I got the 4wt 7'9 rod for smaller creek fishing, but also as a dry-fly rod on medium sized rivers. Overall very happy with the purchase.

    Great 3wt for backpacking

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought the 8'9" 3wt and it is my go to rod for back packing and smaller water. Delicate enough for accurately casting dries but I can still the get the distance and oomph that I need.

    Great Presentation Creek Rod

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have the 7'9" 3WT, and I used this rod for backcountry creek fishing in Colorado, and primarily fished dry flys with it. Presentation is flawless, and action is awesome. I haven't had this much fun in a long time with a rod. Obviously when you have a lot of weight on this rod, its not the best, but I have used it to streamer fish once, and it wasn't horrible. But that's not why I bought it. Caught everything from 8" brookies to 18" cutthroats, and the rod didn't blink.


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

    Got the little 3 wt for backpack and bikepack trips into high mountain streams and lakes. Using an older Abel standard arbor click reel as a line holder with a SA 3wt WF line to balance this outfit nicely. Haven?t gotten it into the backcountry yet (need the snow to melt for that) but on our local rivers its performing admirably. Owning all the big names rods (Sage, Loomis, etc), Temple Fork is a bomber value.

    8'9" 4wt

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love this rod, but it has its limitations. Casting the 4wt compared to the 5wt feels significantly lighter to where a double nymph rig or larger flies do not do well on this rod. Also, roll casting with this rod is difficult as it just doesn't have the backbone for it. For overhead casting throwing a dry, it's perfect. Rod loads well and transfers the energy into a nice light presentation. Also, super fun rod to fight smaller to medium fish on. If I go out knowing I'll be fishing primarily dries that day or if I'm on a smaller river with tiny trout, this is my go to rod.

    8'9" 5wt

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great rod for small/medium river fishing. I have the 5 WT 8'9" and it has a great feel to it. Flexy enough to whip it around but not too flimsy to where you can't throw it far enough. You definitely can feel this rod load when casting, so great for both beginners and experts. The slow action does very well with dries. Nymph rigs start to get a bit sloppy, but it works if it's all you've got. Do not expect much out of this rod in the wind depending on where you fish as it doesn't have the backbone to stand up to it. Fighting fish with this rod is a blast. A bit tough to drive them in if its a larger fish, but perfect for small to medium trout. I could easily see this as being a great all around rod for a beginner or a dry fly rod for an experienced caster.

    Can somebody tell me the length of each...

    Can somebody tell me the length of each section for the #2 (more accurately than 7 ' 3'' divided by 4). I want to know what size rod case it will fit in.

    I have this rod and in the tube from the factory. I went upstairs and measured the factory tube, which is 27 in. long. The cloth bag, inside, fits nicely and will also fit a 25 in rod tube (the factory rod tube is a tad long).
