NEW! TFO BLUE RIBBON 691-4 FLY ROD : 6WT 9'0" w/Fighting Butt
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. The powerful 6wt was designed for the streamer and heavy nymph angler. Great for the bigger browns and smallmouths when throwing chunks of fly meat!
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

Good rod but needs improvements in quality. I went through two of these rods in the spring of 2021 with the same issue. Ended up going to a sage 689-4 payload shortly after.

I managed to get my hands on one of these rods pretty early in its release and I must say that it is hands down my favorite fly rod. This rod is a blend between the TFO Finesse line and the TFO Pro II. It is definitely a medium-fast rod which is what I was looking for as it loads with ease. This rod is incredibly fun to cast and is the most accurate rod I've personally ever used. It's beautifully made and comes with an identical handle and reel seat to that of the TFO Mangrove. It's also very light in physical weight as well as in swing weight. The TFO Blue Ribbon truly is a great all-around fly rod that in a 6wt would be equally perfect on the trout stream as well as chasing bass in rivers, lakes or ponds. I couldn't recommend it more.
