  • Musky, barracuda, pike and roosterfish (to name a few) are big, mean, apex predators; some are the perfect sight-casting quarry, while others require hours of painstaking blind casting. They have one thing in common; they like to eat big meals.

    In order to chase big fish, you need a rod that can handle bushy, air resistant flies. Enter the "Esox" fly rod by Temple Fork Outfitters. After a successful launch of the Mangrove Series fly rods, Temple Fork Outfitters has expanded the line to include a 300-400 and 400-500 grain family of musky fly rods.

    Built with the hardcore angler in mind, the "Esox" series utilizes TFO's proprietary TiCr blank coating, which helps protect the rod from the occasional collision with a weighted fly or gunnel. Topped with TFO's proprietary Tactical Guides, they won't break or pop out like traditional ceramic guides. The unique non-glare chestnut colored blank features a modified full-wells grip and an extended, IGFA compliant fighting butt. The exaggerated fighting butt aides the angler in picking up and casting large flies and heavy lines. It is also beneficial in the alluring 'figure-eight' motion when attempting to elicit a strike near the boat. Cleverly machined hook keeps on each side of the aluminum up-locking reel seat finish out the rod.

    Prolific fly tyer Blane Chocklett of the TFO Advisory Staff, was integral in the design of the "Esox" rod and brings forth a wealth of knowledge from years of chasing toothy, carnivorous fish.
