    TFO DRIFT 3WT 9’0”-12’3” CONVERTIBLE FLY ROD : TF 03 90 6 D


    The Drift Rod is designed to be light in overall weight, fast damping and well balanced as we used a mixture of our highest modulus carbon fiber along with a down-locking reel seat and removable weighted fighting butt. You can further fine tune balance with 3/8th inch ID washers – depending on the weight of your reel. The tip is ultra-sensitive allowing one to distinguish between a subtle take and a bottom tick with a soft tipped action that protects the very light tippets often needed to sustain a drift and remain invisible to a selective trout.


    The versatility of this rod will amaze as it can be fished as a traditional 9’ 4 piece 3 weight, add a 1’ section to make it a 10’ rod, a 27 inch section to make it an 11’ 3 inch rod, or add both conversion sections for a length of 12’ 3 inches. So from traditional 3 weight lines to the tight line nymphing techniques including French, Czech and Polish styles, you’ll make the “leader only” tuck casts with accuracy and ease – at any rod length. Finally, we included a 3 inch lower cork grip that replaces the weighted fighting butt – perfect for the new micro spey lines and techniques… just pick the optimal length for the environment and application.


    Jason Randall, design coordinator, challenged us to create stripping guides that would allow one to add one or more sections without un-stringing line, leader and flies. A big challenge but we did it… and have patented a guide that Lefty Kreh called one of the greatest innovations he has seen in the last 50 years. The rod length can be changed on stream in a matter of seconds and a reel with a couple of spare spools carrying a WF 3, nymphing setup and micro spey and you are well armed for any challenge you might face.


    We believe this is the most innovative and versatile fly rod ever designed – thanks to Jason’s help. There are virtually no trout fishing environments were the selection of conversion options will prove less than superb presentation to the most selective of trout. The rod also bridges the gap between traditional Tenkara and fly rods with reels.

    I would like to start with the great experience the purchase with reelflyrod was. Fast shipping, great service. Now to the product. As a beginner angler, I wanted a rod that could expose me to a few different styles of fly fishing. I feel like I made the right decision. I purchased the TFO Drift and a reel with extra spools to accommodate different situations, and am very pleased. I have started a day off trout spey streaming, switched to Euro nymphing, and as the temps rose, switched to dry flyIng, then back to streamers at the end of the day. As a beginner on a budget, I’m happy I picked an innovative and versatile rod for my first.

    I wanted it for Euro nymphing only. Its heavy compared to others. It did not balance well. No instructions on how to use a rod that no one else makes. If you buy it there is a shorter piece in the cloth rod holder.

    I do a fair amount of hiking to get to many of my fishing spots so a single rod that can be converted into three different styles of fishing seems much better than carrying three completely different rods. I also picked up a Lamson Liquid 3pack from Reelflyrod to go with the rod so I can have three lines to go with the three versions of the rod.
