The Temple Fork Signature Series Fly Rod
I have the rod in Temple Forks 4 Wt. Signature Series. This rod for me is the perfect fit for the fish I am pursuing. It has the backbone to land a larger fish if the occasion arises and yet it has the finesses to play the fish and let it live to fight another day. With its fast taper it is effortless for me to lay out line distance if there is a need to reach that certain far away spot. I like the two piece version over the 4 piece because I just think I can get a little better feel with a two piece as opposed to the four. Maybe that is just me and I know some swear by the 4 piece, but that is my own personal opinion. With this rod addition I have managed to keep all of them in sequence starting with my 3 Wt TP 7 ½ ft. then the new addition 4 Wt. 8 ½ ft. TF and last my retirement gift the 4 pc. Redington 8 ½ ft. ---so I am counting at 3, 4 and 5---and you never say never but could there be a 2 Wt or 6 Wt, in the future????
