TFO Mangrove Fly Rods for Saltwater (or Freshwater)
For decades, Flip Pallot has shared his knowledge, enthusiasm and friendship with countless anglers in the pursuit of some of the most challenging fish around the world. Flip’s experiences have made us better anglers and better stewards of the environment. Now he’s sharing his experience once more through the Mangrove rod series.
Built with the hardcore angler in mind, the Mangrove series fly rods utilize our proprietary TiCr blank coating, which helps protect the rod from the occasional collision with a weighted fly, and our durable, proprietary Tactical Series™ guides, which are braid and saltwater safe. The unique non-glare chestnut-colored blank features a full wells grip with an instant rod weight burled cork ID system, fighting butts on the 7- through 10- and 12-weight, and cleverly machined hook keeps on each side of the aluminum up-locking reel seat.
“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 represent a fishing cast (especially along shorelines) is what is often needed. This is the genesis of the Mangrove family of Temple Fork Outfitters’ 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!”
— Flip Pallot
Note: All models of the Mangrove Series are 9ft in length and are in 4 sections. Also note that TFO does not offer an 11 weight in this series.
