When fishing big water, the amount you can cover often makes the difference between catching fish and getting skunked. A two-handed rod with a shooting type head can make this job much less taxing than banging out double hauls all day. As the day progresses, you decide to move to smaller water or stalk cruising fish in the shallows; this is where all that double haul practice and a great one-hander pay off.
Temple Fork Outfitters introduces a most unique concept... Imagine a two-handed rod and a 4-piece 9-foot rod that will fit in the same length case. TFO now has two lower rod sections designed to replace the single-handed grip section on existing 7- and 8-weight 9' 4-piece TiCrX fly rods. With a total of 6 rod sections of equal length you can now have both, a great 9' 4-piece traditional fly rod, and a 5-piece 11'3" two-hander for easy overhead distance casting. Convertible rods.
Offered separately from the 9' 4 piece rod, the TiCrX two-handed conversion sections include a full two-handed grip with Flor grade cork and heavy-duty knurled reel seat, large Titanium Oxide stripping guides and handsome rod sock. One basic rod—two easily convertible applications enable you to cover the water like you never before thought possible.
