Temple Fork Outfitters™ Lefty Kreh Finesse Fly Fishing Rods
TFO is good for the $
I own several higher end rods and often feel guilty when deciding to make the investment knowing how many other priorities there are, so this time around I thought I'd try to compromise with a much smaller investment. So far, other than some minor aesthetic qualities, I believe this to be every bit as good as the higher end rods. A buddy and I traded, my TFO 386 and his Sage One 490 while fishing recently and I couldn't wait to get my rod back in my hands - got spoiled - and I feel badly that he invested so much more than I did (still love Sage though)!

Comparable to rods 10x more expensive
This rod has wonderful balance and tremendous power for short to medium range casts. If you prefer a shorter rod (as I do), this is the way to go.

I purchased a 2 wt. 7'3" and it's perfect for small stream fishing. Med. fast fast rod with a nice feel for loading the line and making accurate casts.

1weight's a giggle
I purchased a 1wt. already owning a 3wt. finesse for my favorite totally-not-secret-but-secret creek. I love this little rod! You get some good bend with six inch trout, yet it has the backbone to effectively (and in short time) fight and land 17"-18" rainbows, which really suprised me. Fishing with my 5wt. yesterday felt like casting with a 2"x6" compared to this fun little rod.
