The One That Got Away is a common, haunting theme in flyfishing. We’ve fished through many examples: the brown that chowed our Home Invader, hauled a mile upstream, never to be seen again; and the ill-fated fishing poses of uncooperative SOBs that kick wake in your face in the midst of capturing the “shot of a lifetime.”

BVK Series

A finely tuned instrument, lightweight and highly responsive.

That’s what experts are saying about the new BVK series of fly rods from Temple Fork Outfitters. Engineered to the highest performance standards, the BVK utilizes new materials that dramatically reduce weight while creating an aggressive blend of power and strength. The result is amazing performance and an incredible price.

“I’ve dedicated the past year to designing the BVK rods, they are everything I hoped for. You can’t beat the performance, and you sure can’t beat the price.” Lefty Kreh

“Working with Lefty on the design of the BVK Family of rods has taught me all that I never knew about rod design. What has been such a treat for me is bound to become the same for BVK owners! Grab one and see how much trouble you can get into!” Flip Pallot

The rich translucent olive blanks are topped with matching braided carbon fiber reel seats, REC recoil stripping guides, ultra lightweight chromium-impregnated stainless snake guides and flor grade grips that are comfortably contoured and uniquely contrasted. Priced at $224.95-$249.95, these four-piece fly rods are initially available as 9-foot models, for line weights ranging from 5 through 8. Additional models scheduled for delivery later this year, including an 8-foot 3-weight up to a 9-foot 10-weight. Pick one up, we think you will find the BVK light weight and loaded with performance.
