TFO Rods - The Clouser

These rods are made to cast heavily weighted flies and sinking fly lines. This rod is built similar to the Temple Fork TiCrX series. They come in sizes 5 though 9. And they are all 8’ 9” long. The tip is softer than the TiCrX. By design they do not cast a tight loop. You don’t want a tight loop when you are casting a heavy fly.

Although not car door or tailgate proof, the TiCr coating in the finish helps protect the rod from collisions with hooks from weighted flies. The attractive blue blank is easy on the eyes as are the three burled cork rings included on the grips; which has the added benefit of preventing wear from many hours of use. Hook keepers have been added and Lefty’s color coded alignment dot system allows for easy line size recognition. The four-piece design makes transportation easy.

The rods are multi-species not just for bass fishing which Bob first became famous for. They are perfect for saltwater and freshwater fishing.

Casting heavily weighted flies presents a challenge to many modern fly rod actions. For years I have been looking for a multi-species fly rod that puts “the ease” in casting weighted flies and sinking fly lines. The fly rod designers at Temple Fork Outfitters answered this challenge by developing The Clouser Series of Fly Rods.

By no means a single species fly rod; I have caught many species of fresh and saltwater fish with ease on these prototypes. Anglers that use weighted flies or split shot should find this series ideal, dry fly fishers will also benefit from the rods ability to deliver tight loops and specialty casts required to present the fly. The eight foot nine inch length enables the design to perform as expected; light in the hand and super sensitive…I like to say, “I can feel them breathing on the fly as they inhale it”.

Although not car door or tailgate proof, the TiCr coating in the finish helps protect the rod from collisions with hooks, weighted flies. The attractive blue blank is easy on the eyes as are the three burled cork rings included on the grips; which has the added benefit of preventing wear from many hours of use. Hook keepers have been added and Lefty’s color coded alignment dot system allows for easy line size recognition. The four-piece design makes transportation easy.

I thank Temple Fork Outfitters for their outstanding job in developing this series of fly rods. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
