TFO Bug Launcher

106,00 EUR
Partpayment from 9 EUR/month.

The Bug Launcher series of fly rods are perfect choice for youngsters who are interested in fly fishing and need their first quality fly rod. Bug Launchers include thinner diameter compressed cork grips for a better fit in smaller hands. The yellow Bug Launcher logo stands out against a candy apple red blank.

Speaking of blanks, this series is made from general graphite so there's less risk when that passing dragonfly happens to take a swipe. Blank has also a hook keeper above the half wells cork grip. An extended reel seat allows smaller anglers to use two hands for more control. Two models, a 7' 4/5 weight and an 8' 5/6 weight.

Blank and reelseat are both red wine colored. Rod is delivered with red wine rod sock.
