Every year my friend Christian & his lovely wife Tina travel from Germany to New Zealand to fish, last year when they returned home Christian took 3 Epic blanks with him to build up into rods for some of his New Zealand mates.
The chosen few were Bob Wyatt, Dan Isbister and I'm very happy to say, your's truly.
Christian is a man of many talents, one of those being his exquisitely crafted bamboo fly rods which can be seen on his website Splitting the Cane
Prior to him leaving after last season I mentioned that I'd quite fancy a stacked bamboo reel seat - only half joking...
Well here it is, the most exquisite thing I think I've ever seen.
Thank you Christian ;)

We're stoked to release the 4 weight 11 foot trout spey blanks and Ready to Wrap Rod kits!
We've been asked to develop this one for a while now, at 11 feet for a 4 weight (Spey) the 411 is the perfect short Spey rod for trout fishing. Call it a Switch, a short Spey, Trout Spey - whatever, the 411 is perfect for swinging short head Spey lines for trout.
Peter Corzilius, aka Peter Fisher, hails from Germany and we're very proud to have him as an Epic Ambassador. A talented filmmaker and story teller Peter has put together some beautiful fly fishing clips in the past.
His latest clip "The most basic rule of fishing" is both heartwarming and extremely relevant - take a few moments out of your busy day to enjoy it.
