Default Just ordered my Mangrove!

The last time I fished before the world froze solid, I fished a TFO mangrove 10wt for Musky. I haven't been more impressed with a fly rod in a very long time. I knew this spring I'd be getting one. Todays the day! Just placed my order with Bearsden Ordered some premium bucktail and a few other goodies to tie some meat to throw at some "green back hate missiles"

Very nice! Look forward to hearing your thoughts. Think I'm going to pick one up as well for Musky fishing in your neck of the (north) woods

Jay: Congrats on the new Musky rod! I can't wait to read a report that you hooked into one of those monsters and how the rod performed, best of luck!

Jbird - Nice flies and rod man! I just ordered a few of the Mangroves the other day too. Really excited to put them to work!


Now that the warmwater portion of the Namekagon is open, I'm really dying to get back at it. It's only a matter of time until this winter is a thing of the past.

Default Re: Just ordered my Mangrove!

I was at a fly shop expo today here in Sacramento and I had the opportunity to test cast several eight weight rods as im in the market for one. Let me tell you the one I kept coming back to was the Mangrove. What a sweet casting rod. I was lauching line over sixty feet without any effort with accuracy. So many of the rods today are too fast for the average caster like myself and the Mangrove was such a pleasure to cast with. Obviously, this will be the rod Im getting.
