    A sweet little rod!

    This rod packs a lot into a very small package. It has the smooth action you'd expect from an Epic rod and it has more grunt than you'd expect from such a little rod. Initially I was a little skeptical of this rods ability to fight big, strong fish, but my skepticism was misplaced. During one of my first trips with this rod, I caught three fish over 24" - the best one is in the photo attached. I can honestly say I never felt under-gunned. I spent the day throwing large (#6) cicada flies in a decent breeze and, while this wasn't what I bought the rod for, it handled it well. This little rod was perfect for the water I was fishing and breaks down so small it fits easily in a suitcase or bag. A great addition to the quiver!

    Smooth as butter

    This rod is by far my favorite 4wt I have ever casted. Paired with a Ross colorado LT, this is truly my dream setup. Building the kit was much less intimidating than I thought and the instructions were beyond clear. My first epic, but now I want a 686... Nobody else makes a backpacking rod that is this high quality!
