Epic 476 Packlight Ready to Wrap Fly Rod Kit 

The very best components available, all designed to fit together seamlessly. No Reaming, No Drilling, No Sanding - all Epic.

Our famous 476 reconfigured as an ultra packable backpacking fly rod. The Epic multi piece Packlight fly rod is designed to pack into your favourite spot. Designed fish in tight confined creeks but still with the backbone and pulling power of a much larger rod - the 5 piece 476 Packlight is the deal.

Building a great custom fly rod is no mean feat, selecting the correct matching components can be an intimidating exercise alone. Then there’s those wraps, the cork and glue...

Our Epic Ready to Wrap Rod Kit makes life easy - we’ve done much of the hard work for you. The kit contains all the components, glues, rod finish and instructions you’ll need to build your own unique custom Epic fly rod.

The components in our Epic Ready to Wrap Rod Kit have all been specifically designed to work together. Our premium grade cork grip features a tapered bore to fit your chosen blank. Each cork grip is ported to receive our Epic reel seat perfectly.

Each Kit contains:

  • Epic 476 5 piece Packlight blank
  • Our world famous fiberglass rod tube
  • Premium hand sewn rod sock
  • Classic "Cap and Ring" reel seat with fine cork spacer
  • Guide set (Snake brand Universal guides USA)
