Light, Fast and Crisp- TFO BVK Spey

By Temple Fork Outfitters

Arrive at any boat ramp, or lodge from Northern California to British Columbia and you’ll see some of the finest two-handed rods ever built.

From traditional lines, to modern scandi lines and mid-bellies, this three-rod BVK family features a faster, stiffer feel that melds perfectly with swift, touch-and-go style casts.

The 12’8” 6-weight, (400 to 600 grains), rod is the stand-out dry line/summer run rod for steelhead. Ideal for floating tips and dry line work in Oregon and Nor. Calif.

Middle of the fairway grainage on this rod should be about 425-480.

There is a reason why 13-foot, 7-weight two-handed rods are so popular. They can cover just about any species specific technique, whether it’s battling steep banks or wind ripping up the canyon from your favorite run, this rod is small enough to cast in tight quarters while maintaining enough length to lift longer lines off of the water. The ideal grain window for the 7-weight, are lines between 450-650 grains, with the sweet spot being 480-575 grains.

The 13’4” 8-weight, (500 to 700-grains) model has a thin profile, and a light in hand feel, but, make no mistake it was built to handle big water and big fish. Triple density, floating lines and a variety of longer line approaches feel right at home on this rod. For those who desire to go after big salmon and steelhead in deep, fast water with big flies, heavy heads and tips, these rods have the power for the job.

Rods are finished with Tactical Series stripping guides and ultra-lightweight chromium impregnated stripping guides. A trimmed down, reconstituted cork handle allows for ergonomic handling and durability in the wettest fishing conditions.

BVK two-handed models retail for $485.95-$495.95.

The Pandion-Not just a Two-Handed Overhead Rod

By Temple Fork Outfitters

The Pandion series is undoubtedly the premier over-head tool in the TFO line-up.

But an often overlooked use for this rod is as a sustained anchor, skagit style casting rod.

The Pandion Series two-handed rods designed by renowned expert Nick Curcione, have a very smooth medium-fast action, with a medium fast stiffness for lifting and casting more modern style heads and tips.

Pandion rods are built with our Kevlar Axiom technology making them incredibly smooth with remarkable distance and damping qualities.

Rods come finished with Tactical Series stripping guides and ultra-lightweight chromium impregnated stripping guides. A trimmed down, reconstituted cork handle allows for ergonomic handling and durability in the wettest fishing conditions. When the rains of the PNW are dumping and the snow in the Great Lakes is blinding, this improved handle will ensure a tight grip, and a consistent cast every time.

Pandion rods are offered in a 6, 8 and 9-weight models in lengths from 12’9″-13’9″ and retail for $449.95.

For more information on the Pandion Series, please visit, tforods.com or your local TFO dealer.
