Top Fly Rods by Epic

Our FastGlass® fly rods are quite unlike anything you've ever cast - don't confuse these fly rods with conventional fiberglass or glass rods of old.  FastGlass® is a light, responsive and extremely tough unidirectional S2 glass-fibre composite. This material combined with our Epic tapers produces fly rods that are very special and an absolute joy to fish. 
FastGlass® is a registered trademark of the Swift Fly Fishing Company.

 

Carbon Fibre or FastGlass®?

Epic Carbon fibre fly rods are very light, exhibit faster recovery speeds and are extremely sensitive.
Choose a FastGlass®fly rod for silky smooth action, a fuller flexing taper and unsurpassed strength and durability. The fuller flexing nature of FastGlass® helps protect light tippets and fight big fish. FastGlass® is more fun to cast and fish - they just have more soul.

  Handcrafted, Tough, Beautiful. 

We believe there is art in making the finest quality fly rods we can.
