TFO Custom Rod Shop

Fly-fishing with Temple Fork Outfitters just got better than ever with the introduction of TFO Custom Rods.

Similar to the aftermarket modifications sought after by car enthusiasts and racing buffs who want the maximum output from their ride, TFO is now proud to offer a number of customized options to further enhance the casting performance of a select series of rods in our stellar fly rod lineup. The casting characteristics of our production rods have earned the reputation of being second to none. But we know some of you out there demand even more and despite the proven excellence of our rods there is always room for further refinement.

In addition to cosmetic enhancements with guide wraps, reel seats and ergonomic grip modifications, the blank undergoes a blueprinting operation closely akin to engine refinements in the hands of master mechanics. After a blank is rolled it is subjected to a unique blueprinting operation where the energy output is measured inch by inch along its entire length. High and low energy spots are detected and eliminated. The end product is a blank that is in perfect balance.  Its mechanical efficiency has been tuned to its absolute level of performance and that translates into a casting stroke that requires less energy input from the caster. For any given distance the rod works more and the caster works less. It is pure casting efficiency.

Your TFO Custom Rod will be personalized, serial numbered, and custom finished in the USA. Now you can own a rod that fills your performance needs and pride of ownership for much less than the cost of many production rods. TFO Custom Rods are available in 9 foot 4-piece configurations in 4-, 5-, 6-, 8-, and 9-weights and feature TFO's legendary No-Fault Lifetime Warranty. Depending on the custom configuration of your rod, prices range from $550 to $575. Orders can be placed directly with TFO or through any authorized TFO dealer.
