Reel Seat
  • The 888 Ready to Wrap Fly Rod Kit.

    The very best components available, all designed to fit together seamlessly. No Reaming, No Drilling, No Sanding - All Epic.

    The mighty 888 was designed specifically for chasing Big Bonefish but is just at home wrangling large freshwater species too. Given there’s not a flat where the wind doesn’t blow we’ve given the 888 an extra powerful butt section, strong tip and fast recovery rate to help punch a line out into those skinny water breezes.

    The Epic 888 has gained cult status with Redfish, Pike, Musky and Golden Dorado anglers world wide. If you're chasing big toothy courtiers - this is the weapon of choice.

    Regarded by industry pro's and glass aficionados world wide as the best glass 8wt made, the Epic 888 presents beautifully but packs a bad ass attitude. Perfect for tossing big flies, swinging streamers and saltwater work. 

    The 888 is as strong as an ox, super smooth and extremely versatile.

    Each Kit contains:
    • Epic 888 fly rod blank in Electric Blue
    • Epic translucent fibreglass fly rod tube 
    • Premium hand sewn rod sock
    • Finest quality Portuguese cork grip, our wickedly good Full Wells 
    • Fighting butt
    • Epic reel seat in either black or Titanium finish
    • Guide set (Snake brand Universal guides USA)
    • 2 x high quality Titanium Stripper guides

    • China-graph marking pencil
    • Rod stands
    • Comprehensive 42 page build book with step by step instructions
    • Stickers / Decals
    • *Japanese Silk threads. Each kit includes natural 212 silk (we include instructions on how to use this to make perfectly clear ghost wraps) and black thread for trims. These default threads can be substituted for other stock colours on request. View Stock Thread Colours
