This week I interview TFO President and founder Rick Pope
on foreign manufacturing of fly rods, his experiences with Lefty Kreh
and other fly fishing celebrity consultants, and the technology in the
pipeline for future TFO products. He also sets me straight about a few
misconceptions that may open your eyes on the flyfishing industry.
