A Heavyweight Fiberglass Fly Rod - without the heavy weight.

Epic FastGlass® - Classy, glassy and an absolute powerhouse. The mighty Boca Grande is an incredibly tough and resilient 12 weight fiberglass fly rod.

Epic Ambassador Norbert Renuad is a monster Pike specialist here he unboxes our mighty 12 Boca Grande.
