Temple Fork Outfitters (TFO) Stealth Euro Nymphing Rod
I was able to test several iterations of prototypes during the design process. The finished rods provide great performance for your dollar. I especially enjoyed fishing the 10' 2 weight on some Wisconsin spring creeks just before the rod was released. (Devin)
The Stealth series was designed by TFO National Advisor Jason Randall specifically for European, high-stick and tight-line nymphing techniques that require drag-free drifts and ultra-sensitive strike detection. This rod series is engineered to powerfully deliver accurate multi-fly presentations yet to be extremely light and perfectly balanced as necessary for comfortable fishing and extreme sensitivity. Every decision in the creation of these rods has been driven by the goal of maximizing direct-contact fishing performance and, as a result, there is no better set of tools than the Stealth series if that is your focus.
The Stealth series is constructed with high modulus carbon fiber material and is finished in a matte green color. Two models are available – a 10’ 2-weight weighing an incredibly lite 2.8oz and a slightly longer 10’6” 3-weight offering slightly more reach and weighing 3.0oz. The series has down-locking machined aluminum reel seats and feature black single-foot stripping guides for weight savings and black single-foot snake guides. The Stealth series comes in a cloth rod sock and a TFO rod tube.
The Stealth series was designed with singular goal of creating the most direct connection possible between fish and angler. Then we covered each one with TFO’s no-fault lifetime warranty against defects, making them perfect for the angler dedicated to the art of direct contact fishing.
