I was thinking about get the TFO Lefty Kreh Signature II Fly Rods in a 9wt and i planed on using it for pike, steelhead, and salmon. I was wonder if you have used this rod what do you think of it?? and what are the pro's and con's of it. If you use a different rod what is it and do you like it.. my budget is around 140ish. Thank you in advanced

They are fine rods for the money, and should work just fine for your application. You might want to check out the Echo Rods as well, designed by Tim Rajeff, they should be in that price range as well. The Fly Fishers in Milwaukee has the Echo's if you want to cast one prior to purchasing it. Take a look at the Solo or Ion Rod. Ask for Pat or Jared..

I have an axiom 7 wt for bass and a 9/10 Esox for musky. Both favorites for that type of fishing. If you want primarily a salmon/steelhead rod for smaller tributary streams you'll be fine, but might have issues picking up heavier pike flies on lakes. No good forward cast starts with an open loop backcast...distance-wise anyway. You might look for one with a faster action if pike is mostly what you are after. TFO are great rods with a good selection to choose from and the best warranty out there.

Although I've never cast this model, I own one TFO rod. They're nice rods for the money, and should do what youre looking for.

I use an old Berkely 7/8 weight from Walmart, about $30 bucks back then. Yeah, its a cheapy entry level but it chucks ou pike flies just fine. I find you don't need a heck of a lot of finesse
