Who inspired you to pick up a fly rod? Chances are it was a parent, your favorite uncle or a close friend who helped you throw your first tailing loop with great pride. You probably landed your first fish on a hand-me-down rod with a missing guide and a doctored tip. If it’s time for you to pass your knowledge on to others, Temple Fork Outfitters has the perfect rod to hand down. Introducing the Bug Launcher series of fly rods.
Bug Launchers include thinner diameter compressed cork grips for a better fit in smaller hands. The yellow Bug Launcher logo stands out against a candy apple red blank. Speaking of blanks, this series is made from general graphite so there’s less risk when that passing dragonfly happens to take a swipe. An extended reel seat allows smaller anglers to use two hands for more control. Two models, a 7’ 4/5 weight and an 8’ 5/6 weight, both are 2-piece and have a suggested retail of $79.95.
