Temple Fork Outfitters BVK Fly Rods
Fast Action, Soft Feel
I bought this rod to take to the San Juan River and was thoroughly impressed. I've fished with the Z-Axis and Winston Boron, and I would say the feel of the BVK is similar. Dry flies are a dream to cast. I threw bunny leaches, nymph rigs, dries, everything felt great. I even put sink tip line on it and the 9' 5wt had enough back bone to shoot sinking line out there pretty far.
For the money, you can't find a better rod. Granted, it's not made in the US, it's made in Korea, which knock on this rod. There are some design elements and material qualities that you will be able to differentiate between the bVK and Sage One, or any other "top tier" rod, but I will be buying a whole lot more of these rods for the simple fact that they fish well, feel great and are the best bang for your buck.

best sub $500 fly rod ever
Lefty, you sure did your homework on this one!
tried one of these a while back, and had to have one... picked one up an 8wt a few days ago... if you are looking for superb fly rod.. better than some rods costing twice as much... then look no further.
seriously... i doubt i will ever spend over $700 on a fly rod again... for less than the cost of a sage rod, you can buy two BVKs!
if i had to complain, i would have liked to have seen better cork used on this rod, instead of the fancy reel seat...

Light and Fast
I recently bought a 7wt and it throws a 250gr line with authority into a stiff breeze. I like the fit and finish for the price, but I'm getting tired of buying rod tubes for my TFOs! I also own a 4wt Finesse, 5wt BVK, and 8wt Teeny. I started this collection as backup rods to the ones I have in storage elsewhere, but I'm very impressed with both the Finesse and BVK series.

Best Fly Rod Ever!!
WOW!! I am very impressed with the BVK! I purchased the 10' 5 weight, It casts like a dream, even in the wind, effortlessly tossing large leaders(18-20 ft) with precision and finesse!! My first two casts with this rod netted me with two beautiful 8 pound rainbows!! definatly worth the buy!! Thank you TFO and Lefty Krey!!!
