The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The TFO pro 2 fly rod is the absolutely perfect rod for the fly fisher looking to upgrade their beginner fly rod and not break the bank. The rod is priced in the same price point range as beginner fly rods, but is not designed for beginning fly anglers. This rod is a little stiffer than a beginning fly caster would want. The warranty is as good of a warranty as you can get on any fly rod. The lifetime no fault warranty means the rod can be broken for any reason at all and TFO will still repair the rod for lifetime of the rod or send a replacement section. Affordable, high quality, are the best two words to describe the TFO Pro 2 fly rod.

Ideal for
  • Top tier Lifetime No Fault Warranty
  • Affordable-Quality Fly Rod
  • Wide range of different sizes and lengths available
Not ideal for
  • On the stiff side for beginner fly casters
  • Long range accuracy is limited to very good fly casters
  • Could use an upgraded reel seat

The Temple Fork Outfitters Pro 2 Fly Rod is TFO's best selling fly rod. Built as a medium-fast action rod with a progressive taper, this rod is smooth casting and powerful. Components on the rod are alignment dots color coded by line weight, premium grade cork with burled accents, and oversized stripping guides. The reel seats is anodized aluminum with braided carbon fiber inserts. Beginners looking to upgrade their entry level rod, or intermediate to advanced fly fishing anglers looking for a workhorse rod would use these rods.

Key Features

  • Travel Size - All of these rods come in either 3 or 4 pieces to make travel easier.
  • No Fault Lifetime Warranty - This rod is covered by the TFO lifetime, no fault warranty.
  • Progressive Taper - The progressive taper on the action of these rods means that the rod will be a powerful casting rod, and still remain forgiving.

Matt was so easy to work with. He answered all my questions and there were many. He offered detailed explanations for his recommendations and sold me exactly what I needed, nothing more and nothing less. He also gave me valuable information regarding the sport of fly fishing and not just the current equipment I was seeking to buy. It was an amazing experience. Thanks Matt!

Rylyn found a sale for the Douglas Sky G rod and recommended it. He said that this was the best rod in the market and so I bought it. We paired it with monic Trout Master fly line. I was not disappointed at all! The rod feels intuitive and natural to cast. I could cast more accurately and a longer distance than I ever did with my previous rod.

I recently purchased a pair of waders through Curated with Stefan’s help. They were very helpful and able to get me exactly what I was looking. Items were perfect for my price range and the days by the streams/lakes that I will spend my time at. I enjoy researching products on my own, and was worried Curated might take the fun out of things, but this service is great for people like me also. Whether you have an idea of what you want, or are just getting started looking I would highly recommend Curated, and Stefan!

Found a great deal on Curated for a Daiwa fishing pole. My sales representative, Josh, was very helpful in answering questions before the order. Even more impressive was how he and Curated responded when the rod was delivered broken (not their fault). They immediately helped guide me through the return process which provided me the confidence that this would be resolved without issue. New rod is on the way and I have already ordered a second one!
