*We are fortunate enough to receive many wonderfull reviews for our fly rods and they all mean a great deal to us. When a rod is reviewed by an angler & caster with real depth of experience it's something special.

"One word sums up my new 370 FastGlass, badass, if in fact that's a
word... The best way I can describe it is, "where tech meets tradition."
Never had I anticipated the arrival of a new fly rod more, and I currently
own two dozen premium rods and have had another few dozen move through my
personal inventory over the years. The rod exceeded all expectations and
in every way - action, tracking, dampening, aesthetics, components,
workmanship, packaging.

Clearly Epic has taken fiberglass rods to the next 
level

I've owned E-glass, S-glass, and now Unidirectional S-2 Glass. While all have their place, the Epic FastGlass is in a class all by itself as far as overall performance goes.
Not truly fast, but faster than my other glass, and in a good way. Casts
in tight, but can reach out. Roll-casts well. Haven't seen a weakness yet
and don't expect to. Clearly Epic has taken fiberglass rods to the next
level. Only problem is I now want more. Having limited my use of glass to
small stream fishing in the past, I am now wondering what the right rod
could do on my home river?"

I just love it. Great option for those who are not 100% sold on glass yet, and even better option for those who are. I’ve fly fished for roughly 40 years and spend about 100 days a year on the water. Epic brought me back to a time when fly rods were designed for fishing not casting. Can’t wait for spring so I can log some serious hours afield with this rod. Again, it exceeded all expectation and my standards are real high.

"Native fish are often indicator species whose health tells us much about the waters they live in. In this film we will look at the survival challenges these fish have or have had and the successes we're having in managing them, examining working solutions. Factors adversely affecting native fish around the world are often the same, such as over fishing, invasive species, habitat loss, etc"

" Find a feeding fish. Our first consideration is whether the trout are feeding - if at all. If they aren’t feeding, or at least watching for food, you may as well throw stones at them. It’s easy to mistake a non-feeding trout for one that is “refusing” your offerings, when in fact its just ignoring them, or asleep. When there is little food in the water column, trout often go into a semi-dormant state. A hatch of mayflies or drift of nymphs will wake them up in short order. "

Having seen a few tails and created more than my fair share - most entirely involuntarily - I think it best to keep things relatively simple. After-all, we're all about fly fishing rather than any in-depth analysis of casting physics.
Fly fishing and certainly fly casting is most certainly the sport of exceptions and in order to attempt to explain anything in fly casting you tend to have to generalise  -and that’s what i’m about to do.
