In response to the increasing popularity of fly fishing for large carnivorous fish, TFO National Advisor Blane Chocklett
designed the Esox series. Musky, barracuda, pike and roosterfish are big, mean, apex predators. Some offer sightcasting
opportunities, while others require hours of painstaking blind casting. The Esox series was created knowing
that success requires a powerful rod that can cast long distances, handle air-resistant flies and withstand extreme
punishment. With the hardcore angler in mind, Blane designed these rods with actions and power to work monstersized
“full chicken” flies (like his Gamechanger). The Esox series is constructed with intermediate modulus carbon fiber material and features our durable, proprietary Tactical Series Stripping Guides and ultra-lightweight
chromium-impregnated stainless-steel snake guides. The rods are a unique non-glare chestnut color and feature composite cork handles for durability. Cleverly machined
hook keeps are located on each side of the aluminum up-locking reel seat. Esox rods come packaged in a labeled sock and do not include a rod tube. 9', 10 weight, 4-piece, 5.5 ounces. 300-400 Grain Weight. Aluminum Seat with Fighting Butt.
