Building a great custom fly rod is no mean feat, selecting the correct matching components can be an intimidating exercise alone. Then there’s those wraps, the cork and glue...
Our Epic Ready to Wrap Rod Kit makes life easy - we’ve done much of the hard work for you. The kit contains all the components, glues, rod finish and instructions you’ll need to build your own unique custom Epic fly rod.
The components in our Epic Ready to Wrap Rod Kit have all been specifically designed to work together. Each cork grip is ported to receive our Epic reel seats perfectly. Easily assembled step by step.
The Epic™ 476 is produced from industry leading Zentron 8 micron Unidirectional S-2 Glass. This next generationfiber is specifically engineered for fly rod production and features 8 micronfibers developed and produced in the USA. These fibres are almost half the diameter of other unidirectional materials, resulting in a tighter, more precise and stronger material.
Not sanded and not unsanded. Our SnakeBelly™ finish is produced by a unique radial production process. SnakeBelly™ delivers the toughest exterior finish possible. After production, blanks are first painted and then clear coated. This two step process produces blanks that are incredibly scratch resistant and very durable.

This is my first time building a fly rod, so while I have a lot of experience USING one, never tried my hand at building one. I was amazed at how thorough the entire process was, guided by a great instruction manual and absolutely top notch materials. I picked the 4wt rod, wanting to expand my set of fly rods toward the lighter end. The build went smoothly and the end result was a very nice rod. I put it to the test last Monday, trying it out on the Rose River for rainbows. On the third cast, I had a 16" rainbow. The rod performed even better than I hoped, with plenty of backbone to handle this really strong trout. If I can figure how to include pictures, I'll edit this review and publish some pictures of these fish and a nicely bent rod with a big rainbow on the other end! Hal
This is my 3rd ready to wrap kit. So easy to build a quality ultra well performing rod. Love this one in particular (476). Cannot wait to get the deep bend on nice little creek spotted bass!
My 4wt - 476 FastGlass Fly Rod Kit has provided me with the materials to make a high class fly rod with a low stress process. All parts are so well integrated to the making of the rod the enjoyment of the build has been great. Ray
I’ve just finished my 476 build - and very happy with the result. The equipment and instructions provided were spot on. Appreciated the tips and service along the way too. Great way to step into rod building.
