Stockard Good! TFO?? Meh!
Reviewer: A viewer from Slippery Rock, PA US
The service and delivery from Stockard was great. My biggest gripe is with TFO. They use very large font and gaudy graphic on the blank to identify rod model and size. Looks very tacky. A fly rod is a delicate instrument and TFO graphics make it look like a Playskool toy. I was afraid to try and remove it in fear of damaging the finish on the blank. Last TFO for me.
Easy to make and it works

I couldn't wait to receive the kit to make a rod for my nephew. He was visiting and it would be his birthday. The kit was easy to assemble. I've built several rods and kept instructions near at all times. It took about 10 days to build and I didn't make any big mistakes. It is light and very sensitive to the touch as well as being easy to cast and just plain old fun. He fished the Snake River using nymphs and did well. He caught four fish in the first hour. Fishing didn't last much longer due to very cold temperature and he was a bit chilly. It feels good to give something to a person they can enjoy and have fun using it.
