TFO Rods Presents An Interview with Founder Rick Pope

Almost three decades ago, Rick Pope started Temple Fork Outfitters (TFO) with the mission of getting more anglers into the sport of fishing by providing high-end performance fly rods at a fraction of the competitors. The rest is history.

We recently visited Rick at his ranch in central Texas to dive deep in conversation about his life, how TFO got started, and what the future holds for TFO.

We hope you enjoy this conversation!
