Field Test Impact 6wt fly Rod

I've had the pleasure of fishing with the TF0 Impact a 6wt 9 foot 4 piece Medium Fast Freshwater / Saltwater rod together with a TFO BVK Super Large Arbor Fly Reel - Winner of ICAST 2011 Best New Fly product! Spooled with Snowbee XS Double Taper fly line.
This combo has very smooth and powerful action achieving 70ft plus casts with ease in sub-optimal conditions.
The rod delivered accuracy with an effortless feel and level of precision that was so impressive I would recommend it to the all fly casters regardless of experience.
I could find no limitations with this combo.

The other great thing about the Impact and the entire TFO range is the price and life time warranty.

A few weeks back I guided a new fly fisher and had him casting nice loops at 30 feet in no time. He managed to catch Trout up to 20lb and Atlantic salmon in excess of 20lb with ease at Twin Lakes Sporting Retreat Tasmania using the TFO BVK Snowbee combination.

 

Recently at Lake Ellangimite in the western districts of Victoria I caught a good number of Brown and Rainbow Trout up to 3kg and Redfin up to 1.7kg with the same combination Rod, Reel and Line and I can say that I am now a true convert to the TFO Impact.



My next trip later this month will be to the Indian/Nepalese border to cast large flies to the magnificent and hard to fool Mahseer that live in the glacial rivers of the Himalayas.
I will be taking with me a range of TFO luggage, rods, reels and Snowbee fly lines and leaders to review.
We will soon be offering you trips to India to fish for the legendary Mahseer so stay tuned for my next review.
