Fast Action | Freshwater | Saltwater

Perfect for anglers of any age.

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 $89.95.

Bug Launcher Office Rod

The best fly casting tool ever introduced! The Temple Fork Outfitters Office Rod enables you to practice and perfect all types of single and two-handed casts. We started with a unique practice line and leader design and reverse engineered the rod, creating a set of components that work together in perfect harmony.

This three-piece practice rod breaks down to 21.5 inches so you can take it anywhere! The Office Rod comes with an instructional video by Lefty Kreh.
