Temple Fork Outfitters™ Signature II Series Fly Rod
Great beginner rod.
This is a beautiful rod that is easy to fall in love with. I love the finish and color. I upgraded to the Professional however. The action is very slow. I am not a fan of slower rods for general fly fishing. Doubly so for a beginner. Learn on a faster rod and it will be so much easier in the long run. At least for me. Spend the extra 30 bucks and get the Professional Lefty Kreh. Plus you get a 4 piece rod for easier carrying! All that said, great rod just not quite what I was looking for.

TFO fly rod
I was surprised with the way it handled, it was not as good a rod as the CV 2 it replaced but I am pleased with it , got to use it today and enjoyed the way it handled, and I really like the life time guaranty.

I got the 9'0" 8wt rod for a saltwater fly fishing trip in FL and it worked beautifully! Caught many sea trout on it without a problem. The butt section of the rod broke when my father and I were going to fish for bass later on in the summer unfortunately. I sent the rod in for the warranty repair and after three weeks, I gave them a call to see what was going on, TFO replaced my rod with an upgrade to the Professional series.

Value price - great performance
I recently started fly fishing very small, tight creeks in Utah and decided I had enough of trying to make a different brand's 8'6" rod work in frustratingly brushy conditions. I didn't want to drop a bunch of money on a very small, specialized rod, so I purchased a 6' TFO Lefty Kreh Signature Series II rod in 2-weight to cut down on the branch snags. It ended up being one of the best fly fishing purchases I've made. The 6' size excels in tight cover, throw a great bow & arrow cast, and offers plenty of sensitivity for fast, but light-striking Bonneville cutthroat trout. This rod will be making the trip back home to Pennsylvania with me when I go to fish there in October.
