"WOW!!!!! This rod throws a line as flat as a billiard table with a loop you can throw through a screen door. I would certainly rate this one of the very best eight weight rods I have ever cast. For anyone who likes a fast action rod - this does it in spades."

- Lefty Kreh

"This photograph was taken on a tributary of the Orinoco river. The Peacock Bass was 14 pounds (I’m kind of huge, so it doesn’t look as big as it was) fished with a Temple Fork TiCrX #8 bought on burfish.com. The cap is a gift you sent me last time I bought a rod.

Thanks again! Your service is second to none!"

Okuma Integrity Fly Reels
Integrity Large Arbor Saltwater Reel by Okuma

Okuma's large arbor design gives faster line retrieval for a single action reel. traditionally known as a specialty reel, large arbor reels have been fished by the specialists. With the introduction of the integrity, Okuma opens up to the world of large arbor fishing. The Integrity series features a uniquely patented, oversized stainless steel-based disc drag. This amazing drag has little to no initial resistance, with incredible high-end drag pressure. The drag is controlled by an oversized roller bearing, allowing for drag free retrievals.

ALC : AlumiLite construction incorporates Okuma's new aluminum body technology on both spinning and bait casting reels. Aluminum frames are very rigid and can withstand tremendous amounts of pressure and torque. These frames also provide for precise tolerances between moving parts for ultimate smoothness and durability.

Drag Free Retrieval : The Drag Free Retrieval system allows anglers to crank freely with no resistance by utilizing our corrosion resistant stainless steel roller bearing. This is a one-way roller bearing so the spool is only engaged in one direction. As soon as you spin the handle backwards you have instant drag engagement. By reversing this bearing in the spool, you can quickly change the handle retrieve direction.

Rulidium : This proprietary drag material offers a wide range in drag adjustment with precise high and low settings. These super smooth Rulidium washers reduce heat and friction for maximum performance. These washers can be found on certain Okuma star drag and baitcasting reels.

Retrieve Information
LEFT HAND RETRIEVE

If you cast with your right hand and retrieve with your left hand then you want Left Hand Retrieve.

RIGHT HAND RETRIEVE

If you cast with your left hand and retrieve with your right hand then you want Right Hand Retrieve.

Note: Some prefer to use the same hand for casting and retrieving by setting the hook before switching the rod to the opposite hand. This is perfectly acceptable. The important thing is that you retrieve with the hand with which you are most comfortable (fastest retrieve).



Backing Material Information

We will put 20# test Dacron backing material by 3M-Scientific Anglers on to your reel.

Be sure to select your retrieve (see above).

Backing Material

Standard Backing is built with advanced 3M technology that allows 3M to create small diameter backing without losing the inherent strength of the backing material.

Features:
  • Exceptionally thin material for more reel capacity
  • Low coefficient of friction minimizes wear on guides
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Colorfast
  • Extremely high visibility


Optional Fly Lines for this Rod and Reel

RIO Grand® Fly Line - for Fast Action Fly Rods

RIO Grand® Fly Line - for Fast Action Fly Rods
Slick Shooter Process by RIO

The RIO Grand® is an all-around line with distinctive state-of-the-art technology to benefit the trout fly fisher.

The line and tip float extremely high due to AgentX Technology in the line and Super Floatation Tip, RIO’s proprietary manufacturing processes which gives the RIO Grand maximum floatation.

The weight forward taper is one half size heavier to load the faster modern fly rod, yet it gives a smooth light delivery of even the smallest dry fly and the rear taper is long enough for roll casting.

The product of RIO’s SlickShooter™ Process, the RIO Grand fly line incorporates a supple coldwater, super slick, self-lubricating, dirt-resistant coating on a nylon multifilament core.

RIO has included a welded loop on the front end of the fly line to facilitate changing leaders. Tests have found excellent turnover and presentation with this loop. When landing fish, it slides through the rod guides more easily than the customary nail knot. Traditionalists can cut this loop off and not compromise the taper.

This is the perfect line for wet or dry fly fishing.

  • Short, bullet-shaped forward taper
  • Medium length back taper
  • Hard self-lubricating coating on a nylon multifilament core impoves turnover performance
  • Won't wilt or sag in warm water fishing conditions
AgentX Technology
AgentX two coat manufacturing process provides a superbly durable and long casting fly line.

RIO Coldwater Clouser™ Fly Line for Big Nasties

The Clouser Fly Line by RIO

Casting heavy or wind-resistant flies has always been a challenge, even for good casters. RIO collaborated with Bob Clouser, famed fly tier, guide, instructor and conservationist, best known for inventing the Clouser Minnow, one of the most versatile flies for both fresh and saltwater. The Clouser™ line, with a unique reverse compound taper and a bullet front taper, smoothly transfers energy to prevent the characteristic "kick" with heavily weighted flies. This taper effortlessly turns over heavy flies into the wind for both short and long casts. Whether casting Clouser Minnows for stripers or smallmouth bass, poppers, leaded leeches or heavy nymphs and indicators, the Clouser line is a perfect choice for all anglers.

Available in a 8wt (WF-8-F) or 9wt (WF-9-F) for this rod & reel combination.

New in 2004

RIO Bonefish Fly Line

Bonefish Fly Line

The demands of bonefishing require a balance of long and short casts with precise presentation. RIO’s Bonefish fly line does just that, starting with a medium-length front taper to improve turnover without sacrificing presentation, and a slightly longer back taper to smooth out the casting loop. The tropical AgentX coating combined with a Powerflex single-strand monofilament core results in longer casts and a line that will not wilt in most extreme tropical conditions. With AgentX, the line floats higher than competitors’ lines, is easier to pick up off the water, and unlike competing products the running line will not sink and tangle while wading. Includes a welded loop at both ends for easy rigging.

Available in a 8wt (WF-8-F) or 9wt (WF-9-F) for this rod & reel combination.

Bruce Chard Professional Series Fly Lines by Jim Teeny

Bruce Chard
Bruce Chard Professional Redfish/Bonefish Fly Line

Captain Bruce Chard, a full time Florida Keys flats guide, FFF casting instructor and fishing photographer has designed a series of fly lines that best handles the conditions needed to cast, present, and fish a heavily weighted fly hard into the wind. Bruce's tournament winning lines were the reason for the development of Teeny's HPC coating.

The most prestigious fish deserves the most prestigious line. You need a long cast and a delicate, accurate presentation when you have calm conditions versus shorter casts with a powerful tight loop that will drive a longer leader with a heavy fly hard into the wind. The hard "HPC" (high performance coating) coating and stiff mono core will help in creating tight loops and turning over long leaders, while minimizing line tangles.

These lines are excellent for fish ranging from permit, tarpon, bonefish, redfish, shark, barracuda and anything else that requires an accurate presentation with a large fly.

Available in a 8wt (WF-8-F) or 9wt (WF-9-F) for this rod & reel combination.

RIO Saltwater Tropical F/I Fly Line

Florida Bonefish Fly Line by RIO
Florida Bonefish Fly Line by RIO

Slick Shooter Process by RIO The Saltwater Tropical F/I line is built on a medium stiff Powerflex core that is extremeley easy to anneal (stretch). The line features a floating tropical coating with a 9.5 ft clear intermediate tip for deeper flats. The Clouser taper is perfect for casting into a fifteen-knot breeze. Sounds unbelievable, but this line will turn over a 12 ft - 15 ft leader in a strong wind. A 9 ft leader attached to the clear AquaLux tip gives you an effective 18 foot leader, which is stealthy enough for any wary fish. Your guide can still follow the fly at this length, while a totally clear line is really tough to track.

Florida bonefish are normally found in deeper waters of two to four feet. With the 9.5 ft clear sinking AquaLuxฎ intermediate tip, you will get your fly down to the bonefish.

Available in a 8wt Floating/Intermediate Sink (WF-8-F/I) or 9wt Floating/Intermediate Sink (WF-9-F/I) for this rod & reel combination.

Jim Teeny T Series 24ft Sink Tip Fly Line

Jim Teeny's original plan was to develop a one piece fly line with a sinking deep water express shooting head mated with a floating running line that would be easy to cast and very strong. That it would be perfectly balanced and color coded so one could easily see when they could roll cast or pick the line up off the water at the optimum time for the easiest and best results. Because he lives on the west coast, the lines were originally designed for fly fishing for salmon and steelhead on our west coast rivers and streams.

Shortly after their introduction, it was apparent that many other fly anglers had their own ideas about other uses for the lines. In the salt for stripers, blue fish, halibut, bill fish, Tarpon and many others, all fell prey to the T - Series lines. Realistically, what the T - Series & Saltwater Series fly lines have done is open up new fisheries both fresh and saltwater. There is hardly a fish that we cannot go after and quite possibly land with a certain amount of luck.

Jim Teeny TS Series 30ft Sink Tip Fly Line

The TS Series represents a longer version of the original Teeny T Series fly lines. The sinking section is 30 feet long with a 70 foot running line section, totaling 100 feet. The title of the line is Saltwater Series, but it works equally well in freshwater when distance is important.

Teeny Designed this line for anglers who prefer to cast long distances of up to 100 feet. Many have found this line to be very useful on the big wide rivers on the west coast where casting distance is important. If you wish to fish close in, say 20 to 30 feet, you can easily do this. Simply roll cast some of the sinking line. Short leaders seem to work best with these lines. Jim usually runs about 4 feet of leader off the fly line when fishing for Steelhead or Salmon. The best way to cast this type of line is to get the color change to your rod tip and roll cast your line to the surface and then immediately make a single false cast and then shoot it where you want it to go. A great size for Billfish is the TS-550 which is perfect for quick casting and excellent balance to turn over large flies. This line works equally well in both fresh and salt water.

Available in a 250 Grain 7,8,9 Weight 6 inch-per-second Sink Tip or 350 Grain 8,9,10 Weight 7 inch-per-second Sink Tip for this rod & reel combination.

Jim Teeny TS-T Series 24ft Sink Tip Fly Line

The New TS-T Flats Taper line has a 10 foot Clear Tip (slow sinking) along with 14 feet of regular intermediate sinking line. Total tip length is 24' of slow sinking head and 76 feet Floating. This line comes one piece from the factory for greater strength and smoothness when casting.

The big advantage this line will have is on fish that are swimming deeper and it's important that your fly be presented at the proper level. After experimenting with the clear tip or clear lines it's been proven time and time again that an all clear or long clear tip is a definite disadvantage for the angler and also for the guide. They are to hard to see and follow for accurate casts and presentation. Teeny designed a similar line back in the early 80's for Tarpon fishing at Homosassa Springs in Florida. Many seasons passed by as he longed for a line such as this for his arsenal.

Available in a 200 Grain 7,8,9 Weight 1.5 inch-per-second Sink Tip or 300 Grain 8,9,10 Weight 2.0 inch-per-second Sink Tip for this rod & reel combination.

Jim Teeny Warm Water Series Series 30ft Sink Tip Fly Line

Jim Teeny Warm Water Series Series 30ft Sink Tip Fly Line

These lines have been developed to address warm water fishing with a fast sinking line. A braided mono core and our new "HPC" (high performance coating) coating allows this line to be fished in the warmest of conditions. This line is great for any tropical area where water temperatures can and do exceed 70 degrees.

Deep channels and underwater structures can be reached with this NEW Warm Water Series fly line. Teeny has color coded these lines the same as all of our T-Series type lines for easier handling and that added visual control. When you see the color change at the tip of your rod you then can roll cast it to the surface and single false cast shooting the line with confidence that you are at the perfect balance point. These one-piece perfectly balanced lines will cast and perform like our world famous original T-Series lines.

Available in a 325 Grain (8,9,10 Weight) 6.5 inch-per-second Sink Tip for this rod & reel combination.

RIO Density Compensated (DC) 24 Ft Tapered Sinking Tip Fly Line

Desity Compensated Sink Tip Fly Line by RIO

The best sinking tip fly line in the world whether you are streamer fishing for trout or using marabous for steelhead and salmon. The DC 24 ft sink tip line has been the line of choice for steelhead anglers for many years.

No more level sinking tips - although the tip has a smaller diameter than the thicker sinking belly, the tip will sink first, presenting the fly at the same level as the fish for more strikes.

The short, thick body section behind the sinking tip keeps the heavy density tip from hinging and is much easier to cast than competitors’ lines. The balanced length of thick floating body ensures a no hinge effect during the casting stroke.

The durable running line ensures that these lines will outlast those of any competitor.

Available in a 200 Grain 7-8 Weight 5.5 inch-per-second Sink Tip or 300 Grain 8-9 Weight 7.3 inch-per-second Sink Tip for this rod & reel combination.

Density Compensated (DC) Type 4 Full Sinking Fly Line

The DC series of sinking lines have a denser tip than the body, ensuring the line sinks straight, not in the curve of regular sinking lines. This results in better bite detection and more hook ups. These lines are made on a supple core for memory free performance and have a super smooth, tungsten impregnated coating that makes distance casting easy. An essential range of lines for the serious lake angler.

Available in a 8wt (WF-8-S4) or 9wt (WF-9-S4) 4 Inches-per-Second Full Sink for this rod & reel combination.

Knotless Bonefish Leaders by RIO
  • Great abrasion resistance
  • The world's only IGFA Class tippet in knotless leader
  • Thick butt to turnover big flies and counter in wind conditions
  • High knot and tensile strength
  • Light gray color is the most neutral and integrates visually with any background for the perfect camouflage
  • RIO knotless leaders have a high tech "best maximum pull" ratio to orient the molecules in a linear chain. This means that RIO's leaders return to their original taper after a fight

RIO Fluorocarbon Leaders

When stealth and accurate presentations are required for wary fish, the RIO Fluoroflex Knotless Tapered Leader is the leader of choice. The leaders are nearly invisible and feature superb knot strength, and abrasion resistance. In the tradition of RIO, the leader tapers are designed and extruded to exacting tolerances. Since Fluorocarbon is denser than nylon, the Fluorflex leaders will sink faster than traditional nylon leaders.

These leaders are a good choice for fishing chironomids and emergers in lakes.
