The TFO BVK fly rod is one of the lightest and most responsive fly rods available on the market today - at any price. In fact, many of our favorite guides keep the TFO BVK as a backup - but end up fishing them as their primary rod. New materials have allowed the rod designers at Temple Fork Outfitters to create a fast-action fly rod that maintains a smooth feel traditionally associated with slower rods.
Built with the highest modulus graphite available, the TFO BVK is not only extremely sensitive, but very lightweight. In fact, the BVK is one of the lightest rods on the market today.
Tactical Series Stripping Guides - the ultimate high performance guides designed to withstand the most rigorous fishing conditions while providing maximum weight savings. The guides feature super hard-chrome anodized, stainless steel inserts pressed into a machined, hard-anodized, stainless steel frame for extreme durability in both fresh and saltwater.
Snake Guides - Each rod is then finished with ultra lightweight, chromium-impregnated, stainless snake guides.
Dual Uplocking - Designed for bigger game, these rods feature a dual uplocking reel seat, a guide favorite which ensures that your reel will always be secure.
Carbon Fiber insert - an attractive way to finish the rod, the green carbon fiber insert.
Rod tube not included - like all 4-piece single hand TFO rods, the BVK includes just a rod sock. We highly recommend purchasing TFO's Triangular Rod Tube with your rod. The 5-piece models include a rod tube.
No-Fault Warranty - The BVK is covered by TFO's industry-leading "No-Fault" Lifetime Warranty. It's only $30 for a repair and turnaround time is usually only a few days.
