Temple Fork Outfitters (TFO)

What does it mean to be original? For many, original means being the first to do something or being the mold from which copies are made. We often call these copies imitations. Temple Fork is neither a copy, nor an imitator. For Temple Fork, being original has always been about setting the bar and creating the standard by which an angler weighs a rods performance against its price. And in fly fishing, they were the first to emphasize this relationship, becoming the original rod company to offer the right tools at a sound price.

TFOs goal is to provide their anglers tools that properly meet their needs and that are designed to last a lifetime, but wont empty their pocketbooks. And for more than two decades this idea has led TFO to design fishing rods recognized for optimizing the balance between performance and price by focusing on high-end performance, sophisticated and elegant design, and no unnecessary accouterments that add expense and cost. Engineered to exacting standards set by some of the planets most legendary anglers, TFO manufactures each fishing rod with total control over every step of the journey from initial product development through final production at their own factories. The result is some of the best and highest quality fly fishing rods and gear you can find anywhere. Theres a new breed of angler out there. Theyre smart. Theyre passionate. And theyre fishing Temple Fork.

Temple Fork Outfitters is extremely popular among anglers weve met over the years. From new anglers to experienced experts, TFO makes amazing and high quality gear for you. Give TFO a try.
