TFO Rods - Bug Launcher

Who inspired you to pick up a fly rod? Chances are it was a parent, your favorite uncle or a close friend that helped you throw your first tailing loop with great pride. You probably landed your first fish on a hand-me-downrod with a missing guide and a doctored tip. If it is time to pass your knowledge on to others, Temple Fork Outfitters has the perfect rod to hand down. The Bug Launchers are made from general graphite, so they are incredibly durable. They feature smaller diameter compressed cork grips and a candy apple blanks with a bright yellow logo.

NEW Bug Launcher Kits include TFO NXT reel rigged with a matching WF floating fly line, leader and backing all packed neatly into a rod and reel carrying case. Sock is included too!

TFO Bug Launcher Office Rod
The New TFO Bug Launcher "Office Rod" enables you to practice your casting indoors at the office or home. With the Office Rod you no longer need a large outdoor practice field to learn or improve your casting skills. The 3 piece Office Rod has a technically designed highly-visible line with a tapered leader that loads the rod just like a standard fly rod. Practicing roll casts and single-hand spey casts are now possible from behind you office desk. The Bug Launcher is made without a reel seat, just our compressed cork grip. The yellow Bug Launcher logo stands out against a candy apple red blank and is made from general low modulus graphite so there’s less risk of rod breakage when practicing indoors. A must for the long winter months!!
