Bob Clouser is something of a legend in both the saltwater and freshwater theaters of fly fishing, so it's no surprise that his newly redesigned TFO Clouser Fly Rod is versatile enough to fish both fronts. Its fast action feel is great whether you're chucking minnows to redfish or throwing heavily weighted streamers to big trout lurking in the riffles. The newly redesigned taper of the Clouser makes the rod powerful enough to cast weighted lines and wind resistant flies, yet still delicate enough to protect your leader from thrashing reds and ripping rainbows. As importantly, the components on the Clouser are highly versatile, with a machined aluminum reel seat that will tolerate saltwater environments and durable snake guides that are composed of chromium impregnated stainless steel. Each handle is made from Flor grade cork and has burled accent rings, giving the rod a rich and recognizable look.
