New Fly Rods: TFO's 10th Anniversary Special Edition Rods

Hard to believe the Temple Fork Outfitters has been making rods for ten years already, but indeed they have helped redefine the “affordable” niche in fly rod manufacturing. Their latest: two rods that celebrate their anniversary with a little bit of eye candy, both for $299.95. “To celebrate these last 10 years, we have taken two of our most popular rods and decked them out. The 4 piece 10th Anniversary Special Editions will be offered in an 8’9” 5 weight and a 9’ 8 weight. The rich translucent olive blank on the 589 is highlighted with beautiful nickel silver hardware, burled maple spacer and Flor grade cork. The distinctive blue blank on the 890 will be topped off with a polished gun metal blue reel seat with a composite cork fighting butt cap and Flor grade cork. Both rods will come in a TFO logo rod sock and a most unique Special Edition carbon fiber rod tube.” Read the extended entry for the full press release.

TFO’s 10th Anniversary Special Edition Rods
Ten years ago an idea spawned; to offer high-performance fly rods at affordable prices that would encourage more to enjoy the fly fishing experience. Starting with two-piece 5, 6 and 8 weight rods and a marketing plan to simply ask rod owners to tell their friends about us, Temple Fork Outfitters eventually hatched. With requests for additional rod lengths and weights, TFO began to grow. We added multi-piece rods, our Western and Saltwater Series for traveling anglers. In February, 2003 Lefty Kreh agreed to be involved in the design of all our rods with a common goal: To increase participation in and awareness of fly fishing by offering the best possible combination of price and performance in rods. After casting and analyzing our current production rods, he immediately started working on new designs; the TiCr followed by the TiCrX and Finesse Series.
To celebrate these last 10 years, we have taken two of our most popular rods and decked them out. The 4 piece 10th Anniversary Special Editions will be offered in an 8’9” 5 weight and a 9’ 8 weight. The rich translucent olive blank on the 589 is highlighted with beautiful nickel silver hardware, burled maple spacer and Flor grade cork. The distinctive blue blank on the 890 will be topped off with a polished gun metal blue reel seat with a composite cork fighting butt cap and Flor grade cork. Both rods will come in a TFO logo rod sock and a most unique Special Edition carbon fiber rod tube.
10th Anniversary Special Edition rods will be available in limited numbers, with a MSRP of $299.95. All TFO rods feature our lifetime unconditional warranty. Simply return the damaged rod with $25 for shipping and handling, and we will repair or replace your rod.
