Temple Fork Outfitters Lefty Kreh TiCr X Series Fly Rods
The evolution of the Lefty Kreh TiCr X Series has been fascinating. Imagine Lefty Kreh taking a prototype and saying "this is a nice rod but..." Then imagine new mandrels and as many as 6 prototypes later having him say, "PERFECT!"
Lefty designed the TiCr X Series to be a powerful angling tool. Rod weights 5-8 are designed to present flies at distant targets. Rod weights 9-12 have the power to launch larger flies and to lift an angry fish out of the depths. The reserve power in the TiCr X Series give these rods the ability to carry a lot of line in the air and can easily be overlined for close-in work. The X rod's blue finish springs to life in a little sunlight, while the Flor grade cork, oversized titanium oxide stripping guides, and uplocking reel seat with cushioned hoods top off this ultimate package of form and function.
|Braided Graphite/Aluminum Uplocking Reel Seat|
Handsomely finished in a rich blue blank color, the 5- & 6- (lt) weights have a reversed half wells grip, single up locking rings and a matte black graphite insert.

2 Piece Conversion Kit
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.
