NEW! TFO BLUE RIBBON 486-4 FLY ROD : 4WT 8'6"
New for the 2021 fishing season, the TFO Blue Ribbon rod series. A medium fast action rod series that blends the previous Finesse rod feel with the power and lift from Clouser rod series. The Blue Ribbon rods are a feel good, accurately tapered rod in ranges between 2wt to a 7wt. A perfect all around freshwater rod for tiny mountain streams, to larger river streamer fishing. The 4wt 8'6" is a great all around lighter trout rod and length. Great for medium to larger size rivers.
The Blue Ribbon series is perfect for the freshwater angler who needs to effectively cover water with repeated casts over the course of the day. In these situations, the successful angler is the one whose fly is in the water the most. For this reason, the Blue Ribbon series is designed to load easily with minimal back cast allowing the angler to make quick accurate casts with very little effort. So, whether its casting indicators, or multi-fly rigs from a drift boat, or bait fish patterns to the bank all day the Blue Ribbon series is engineered to deliver cast after cast with ease.
The Blue Ribbon series is constructed with intermediate modulus carbon fiber material and finished in a chestnut brown color with premium cork grips. The light weight up-locking solid brushed aluminum reel seats include an integrated hook keeper and have carbon fiber inserts. The 11-rod series is finished with SiC stripping guides and ultra-lightweight chromium-impregnated stainless-steel snake guides. All models feature TFO’s line weight ID system on the handle and alignment dots color coded by line weight. Blue Ribbon rods are packaged in a labeled rod sock and TFO rod tube.
The Blue Ribbon series is all about efficient casting when keeping the fly in the water is key. And when combined with TFO’s no-fault lifetime warranty against defects, these rods are the perfect choice for covering lots of water in search of your favorite freshwater species. Fish the Original, TFO

I just returned home from a trip to Tennessee where I broke in my new TFO Blue Ribbon 4wt on some mountain streams and man did it perform. This is one of the smoothest casting rods I've ever handled. It tossed everything from tiny dry flies to hopper dropper or indicator rigs with no problems at all. I paired it with the SA Amplitude Smooth Infinity line and it was a great match. Overall, I am stoked about this rod.

I got this rod a few months back and love it. If you're looking for an 8'6" 4 weight rod that won't kill the bank, this is the one for you. Perfect for the mountains of North Carolina!
