Thread: Kudos to TFO...

  1. Default Kudos to TFO...

    I got my first TFO rod the other day at Sportsman's Warehouse in Wasilla. I just can't believe how awesome this thing is for the price. I got the 4wt. Lefty Kreh Finesse series 8'9" and its handled fish I wouldn't believe and casts like a dream. I've been using it to fish for pinks but have accidentally hooked into a few 8 lb chum and a huge 12 lb sockeye and this rod handled them like a champ. I never would have imagined that it would take that size fish buy it has. I wish I'd had my good camera on me but its been raining so much so this was the only picture I've gotten to snap. I know its a crappy picture but it was my old point and shoot and I was in a rush to get the fish back in the water. I didn't weigh this one but it was still a good size red.

    AKJay: Thanks for the report, I would never have thought a 4wt would be up to handling that size of fish, must be a really nice rod.

    I took it along yesterday fishing for pinks and silvers and I swear the largest pinks I caught were on that bad boy. I never would have believed they would hold up to that.

    I'm not shocked to hear that about the rod, TFO makes great casting, tough rods for nice prices.

    That reel looks like a Okuma Sierra. As long as you're catching serious fish, I'd make sure to keep it very clean or upgrade to a bit better reel. The Sierra has exposed roller bearings that turn on the spool spindle that could sure get fouled up if some grit gets in there. (from, ya know, a mud puddle or something)

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    Haha, good call on the reel...and ya, I know its not the best but it does the job. I've been really sure to clean it very well after it touches anything other than my case. I may end up upgrading before long but for now it does the job.
    Thanks though Cliff.

    TFO also supports Project Healing Waters, so your support enables them to support us as well!
    I have fished with their rods before and have to say they are a very good quality rod for the price, no doubt!
