TFO Mangrove Fly Rods
For decades Flip Pallot has shared his knowledge, enthusiasm and friendship with countless anglers in the pursuit of some of the most wary and challenging fish around the world. From spellbound anglers tuning into The Walker's Cay Chronicles to those who have been fortunate enough to share a boat with him, most all would agree that Flip's experiences have enriched us, made us better anglers and made us better stewards of the environment. And now he's sharing his experience once more through the new Mangrove serieis rods from Temple Fork Outfitters.
Built with the hardcore angler in mind, the Mangrove series fly rods utilize TFO's proprietary TiCr blank coating, which helps protect the rod from the occaisional collision with a weighted fly, and TFO's proprietary Tactical Guides, which are braid and saltwater safe....plus they can't break or pop out like traditional ceramic guides. The unique non-glare chestnut colored blank features a full-wells grip with an instant rod weight burled cork ID system, fighting butts on the 6 through 10 and 12 weight, and cleverly machined hook keeps on eash side of the aluminum up-locking reel seat.
"Super technical, magnum taper rods are not always the right choice for all anglers in real fishing situations. A rod that anglers can feel and can re-present a fishing cast (especially along shorelines) is what is often needed. This is the genesis of the Mangrove family of TFO rods; they are, very simply, fishing tools that have been developed slowly and carefully in the crucible or real, honest fishing situations.....not on a drawing board!"- Flip Pallot
