"They seem to be bullet Proof" - An Epic Fly Rod Review From Peter Hayes

August 27, 2013 5 min read

Epic 580 Fiberglass Fly Rod ReviewThe Epic Rods are not heavy in the hand. They are very robust and I doubt you could possibly break one.  They have a beautiful feel and give meaningful feedback to your brain through your casting hand. I think you will cast them more accurately than a stiffer graphite rod. They cast silky loops a very long way if you need to. They fight fish with more finesse and feeling something like my Taransky cane rod does.   It is kinder to the fish this way. The cushioning in these S2 glass rods will loose you less fish.

Epic 990 Review & Build from Snowman Custom Rod Works

July 01, 2013 4 min read

9 weight Fiberglass Fly Rod"I am really impressed with the Epic 990 profile. It seems like nobody builds a high weight rod for small water 30 pound king salmon. This profile would be ideal. I often find myself caught up in powerful seven and higher weight rods that can generate more line speed than Indiana Jones whip, but has the feel of construction grade rebar. This rod is a mix of both and it's performance is STUNNING.

May 31, 2012 2 min read

If you fly-fish and read magazines or surf the ’net, you’ve probably heard about a New Zealand film called Once in a Blue Moon. It was a landmark fly fishing film released a couple of years ago. It catapulted the genre out of being videos of guys catching fish, into proper ‘films’ about the fly fishing culture, psyche and life. On The Fly, the makers of that seminal film, have now gone a step further with the release of their latest production Itu’s Bones.
