Fly Fishing Rods and Reels

temple fork outfitters fly rodTemple Fork Outfitters Fly Rods-  (Read More about TFO Fly Rods) – I have the 6 wt TiCr. My rod belonged to a professional fishing guide on Utah’s Green River. He let us borrow a rod for a few days and said I could return it or buy it. After using it, I bought it. The Rod Power Matrix definitely lives up to all the hype. I made a comparison table of action, presentation, distance, lift, weight of all the Temple Fork Outfitters rods at the above link if you want to see the difference between fly rods.

Waterworks – Lamson is well known for making solid reels that are solid values. I bought my first Lamson reel because it highly recommended to me by a friend.

I use an older Lamson Konic II model on my 6 wt TFO fly rod and a Lamson Guru for my 4 wt Echo fly rod.

I also use a 3/4 wt Reddington Surge with 3 wt line for fishing the smallest, “brushiest” streams with a 7.5 foot fly rod.

Portable Pontoon Boat

sea eagle pontoon boatSea Eagle 375fc Fold Cat – (Read our Sea Eagle Review) – the 375fc model is 12 foot 4 inches long and holds two people and gear up to 650 lbs, but is small enough to fit in the trunk of a car. My wife and I can unfold it, pump up the pontoons with a foot pump and outfit the boat in under 10 minutes. We can carry the boat with all our fishing gear in one trip to the water. The Fold Cat can be powered by a small gas or electric trolling motor, but we mainly use it on small lakes where motors are prohibited. Next Summer, we’re planning a float trip on the Green River.
