Temple Fork Outfitters Official Rod Sponsor of Fly Fishing Film Tour

Temple Fork Outfitters the official sponsor of the 2015 Fly Fishing Film Tour, (F3T).

The F3T is the original and preeminent exhibition of fly fishing cinema, and a one of a kind experience. Each year fishy folk of all ages gather at premieres to soak up films from around the world, spin a few yarns and dream about casts still unmade.

Since its inception in 2007, the F3T has grown more than 30 percent each year; reaching nearly 50,000 anglers across North America last season. To keep up with demand they have added additional tour stops and increased capacity in the communities that support fly fishing and responsible angling tactics.

In addition to showcasing world-class fly fishing films, The F3T is dedicated to supporting the local fly shops and conservation groups that form the backbone of our sport’s educational and environmental efforts.

F3T tickets are available at more than 150 fly shops across the country. A portion of those ticket sales go directly to support fishing and habitat-related conservation groups.

In 2013, the tour raised $250,000 for our conservation partners and have used our voice to bring greater attention and support to groups like Trout Unlimited, Wild Steelhead Coalition, Bonefish Tarpon Trust, Utah Stream Access Coalition and many others.

TFO And Patagonia Team up on Tenkara

Temple Fork Outfitters is proud to announce a new partnership with Patagonia.

In the coming weeks a special TFO/Patagonia Tenkara series of rods, featuring the Patagonia ‘Fitzroy Trout’ logo will hit Patagonia shops nationwide.

Available in a 8’6-inch, 10’6-inch and 11’6-inch configuration, TFO is continuing their tradition of providing High-Performance-Affordable equipment to anglers.

Based on a traditional Japanese method of fishing using only a rod, line and fly, tenkara fishing permits anglers to make precise casts, delicate presentations, and manipulate their fly with extreme ease. Telescoping down to 20 and 20.5 inches, the Soft Hackle rods are perfect for the backpacking angler.

The rods come with a spare tip and second section. The rod sock has a unique line holder built-in to help organize your line when not in use.

An Every-Man’s Rod With Real Talent

Journalist and photographer Memo Stephens may have said it best when he did this write-up on the Temple Fork Outfitters Professional Series rod.

“With simple, decent materials, and no glitter; TFO has managed to build an Every-man’s rod with real talent.”

That’s his take on the 9′ 5 wt. Pro Series rod, and here is his blog post for The Patagonia Journal on discovering that his “back-up” rod, is much more than just a back up.
