About the Rod

With new components and cosmetic upgrades, the Pro II series are medium fast-action rods with a progressive taper that are smooth casting and powerful, yet forgiving. Every rod features alignment dots color coded by line weight, premium grade cork with burled accents, and oversized stripping guides. New anodized aluminum reel seats with braided carbon fiber inserts make these rods as forgiving on the eyes as they are in the hand.


About the Reel

TFO’s Large Arbor reels are machined from aircraft-grade aluminum and offer a state-of-the-art draw bar/carbon fiber disk drag. Three bearings give our reel its smooth-as-silk spin, and a one-way roller bearing makes it easily convertible from left hand to right hand retrieve.

The TFO Large Arbor fly reels are perfect for both freshwater and hardcore saltwater use. Lightweight and powerful, they are exactly what you want on your rod when you hook that fish of a lifetime.
