I have never won anything. This would be beyond Epic! I wish i got the 5wt 590C carbon kit. You would have an eternally grateful angler and future buyer of more rods if i happen to love it

I would love to see a olive eight foot, five weight (580) under my tree. I feel that rod would be ideal for my Arctic Grayling finny friends in the spring fed slough by my home. I also need a project to help me get through the cold, dark winter up here in the sub-arctic.

The 4wt Packlight 476 Fly Rod, (cap & ring, of course), seems to be the ideal New England brook trout rod. Light and tight for fishing those thin blue lines throughout the Berkshires. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your drawing.

I have enjoyed immensely making a pack light4weight and an older 3 piece 5 weight purchased from a friend who didn’t have time to complete. It has given me a real appreciation for the craftsmanship of the professionals, although mine do not have the appearance of a studio built rod they fish perfectly, I’m a complete convert to fibreglass! In between trips:to NZ I want to fish the costal regions of NSW and I can think of no better rod to start with than the gorgeous Boca Grande, fingers crossed my name gets pulled out as I will enjoy making the Rix as much as fishing with it!!!

With a two year old it’s obvious that I’m broke and with little time to spare for anything personal this would be an amazing gift for not only me but hopefully something that I can pass on to my daughter when she gets a little older.

This ready to wrap kit would be a nice gift. I’m doing a one hand skagit presenttion next spring at the Sherbrooke spey clave. Just think doing that with your fastglass rod would be great. You don’t see many people do that on a kne hand glass rod.

I can’t lie, this would be really helpful. Kinda broke after that Ross reel and I’m definitely new to the game and have been using a couple eagle claw beater the whole time. I have bass fishing right near me here in Texas and I’m a very short drive from the streams in New Mexico and Colorado. I absolutely love to fish for trout in those places. Your 6wt – 686 FastGlass Fly Rod Kit – Blem in either color would be an excellent treat. Thanks for giving us a shot anyway.👍

I’ve made many custom rods in the past, though never my own Flyrods. Considering how much I enjoy casting my friends Epic rod, I look forward to building my own style Epic masterpiece! Sharing it amongst my mates will be great!

Fly Fishing - More thoughts on “selective" trout from Bob Wyatt

October 31, 2019 2 min read

"We know that simple-brained animals like trout can’t deal with a lot of information at once, so while they are hunting they probably can’t think of much else. This isn’t selectivity but tunnel vision."

Fly Casting  - The Roll Cast. I can't over emphasise how important this cast is. Deceptively simple, the Roll Cast is the most useful and versatile cast there is - more so than the fundamental overhead cast that is so synonymous with single handed fly casting.
