TFO's new big game reel designed by Terry Hayden

For over a decade, anglers on the Southern oceans have admired and lusted after Terry Hayden's hand crafted saltwater fly reels. For nearly as long, Hayden has been seeking a way to make this high level of performance available to fly anglers at a reasonable cost. The partnership between Hayden Reels & Temple Fork Outfitters now makes possible a fly reel of the highest quality and design for a price that anglers of ordinary means can afford.

The Hayden TFO reels are designed to battle the strongest fish in the ocean. Machined from 6061 aluminum and Type III hard anodized, these reels are extremely tough and built for a lifetime of service. Hard anodizing penetrates the base metal becoming an integral part of the material while building up on the surface creating a finish that's highly resistant to "boat rash". Parts processed by this method have a hardness of 65 Rockwell "C". Three stainless steel bearings and a large surface area cork drag with redundant double spring pawls are combined for a smooth start up and positive stopping power. To cover your big game needs, Temple Fork Outfitters new Hayden Reels are available in 3 sizes; The Hayden 1 (250 yards of 50# Bionic Braid and a 9 weight line : $349.95), the Hayden 2 (300 yards of 50# Bionic Braid and a 12 weight line : $364.95) and the Hayden 3 (500 yards of 50# Bionic Braid and a 14 wt. line : $379.95).

Temple Fork Outfitters Fly Reels are guaranteed against defects in materials and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the reel. For additional information or the name of you local dealer call Temple Fork Outfitters at: (800) 638-9052.
