Epic 690C Carbon Fibre fly rod review For the past forty years, like most of us, I've been in love with stiff fly rods.  They kept getting stiffer and faster, and they couldn't get fast enough for me.  Recently, the top end rod makers have been offering softer, gentler, more 'fishable' actions.  Maybe its because al lot of us are getting older and our pace is slowing a bit, but a lot of young anglers have been taking the slow lane as well.  One reason is, simply, that the stiff rods are too hard to bend. They lack the cushioning feel of the classic medium action and demand a fine tuned sense of timing and a sophisticated stroke.  The Epic 690-C, and it's little sister, the 590-C, have been a revelation to me.

Epic Carbon Fiber Graphite fly rod reviewAndrea and I have been beating around on the 590C (Andrea) and 690C (myself) for slightly over a year now. First impressions; mmmm black, I love the image of the raw carbon in lightly sanded state. At this point of the inspection phase I realized they are crazy light for a 5 and 6 line. Who doesn't love a light rod?

Epic Fiberglass Fly Rod Review I have finished my Epic 580 and thought I would share some impressions. First, I like it a lot. Whilst I am a child of the graphite age, the first rod I fished with was a fibreglass Killwell Robin Hood - a blue beast with nice red wraps that was borrowed from my dad and that he still fishes occasionally.
