TFO Mangrove Fly Rod

Built with the hardcore angler in mind, the Mangrove series utilizes TFO's proprietary TiCr blank coating, which helps protect the rod from the occasional collision with a weighted fly, and TFO's proprietary Tactical Guides* that are braid and saltwater they can't break or pop out like traditional ceramic guides. The unique non-glare chestnut colored blank features a full wells grip with an instant rod weight burled cork ID system, fighting butts and cleverly machined hook keeps on each side of the aluminum up-locking reel seat.

*TFO's Tactical Guides are high performance guides designed to withstand the most rigorous fishing conditions while providing the ultimate in weight savings. The guides feature super hard-chrome anodized, stainless steel inserts pressed into a machined, hard-annodized, stainless steel frame for extreme durability in both fresh and saltwater.

TFO Mangrove Fly Rod 10

"Mangrove sticks were first seen in my mind's eye from the poling platform of my skiff as I watched anglers struggle with fishing casts...realistic fishing casts within sight fishing distances.

Many saltwater fishing opportunities are fleeting and require timely presentation of fly to fish. It's not really so much the number of false casts required to close the deal as it is how quickly the angler can begin to feel the fly line and shoot the fly into the area of awareness of a fish.

The rod and the casting abilities of each angler have EVERYTHING to do with this. Super technical, magnum taper rods are not always the right choice for all anglers in real fishing situations. A rod that anglers can feel and that can re-present a fishing cast (especially along shorelines) is what is often needed. This is the genesis of the Mangrove family of TFO rods; they are, very simply, fishing tools that have been developed slowly and carefully in the crucible of real, honest fishing situations...not on a drawing board!

Grab hold of a Mangrove Stick by TFO and see just how much trouble you can get into."

TFO Mangrove Fly Rod Reviews

Bonefish Delight Review by David
Posted on 11/27/15
I have used the 7wt version of the Mangrove and have been pleasantly surprised. First off, all the fly rods designed for salt are fast action but I felt this rod's action was a little slower. For anglers that are new to fly fishing the slower action will make it easier to control. However, if it's really windy, line control could become an issue. The lighter action also makes it easier to cast all day long too.
For the price and quality, there is nothing I really dislike about the rod. The biggest issue for me is the action, I like salt rods to be a little faster.

Picked up an 8 Wt to add to my collection and replace a White River rod. While I did not catch anything on it... It casts like a rocket!

I am in love with this rod.
Great Rod Review by Brad

I needed an 8wt rod so I was between this and the BVK. Due to the long term success of the BVK and all the info available on it I purchased the BVK. It was a great rod but after months of use I still desired more out of it so purchased the Mangrove. I am so GLAD I did! I fish for bass and occasional saltwater so I generally use good size flies, and the mangrove chucks them out there with no problem. Right away I cast 20-30ft further with the Mangrove over the BVK. This rod also has a lot of backbone to pull the fish up and out of the weeds. If you go with this rod you will not be disappointed.
