  • Meet the very lucky Epic 888

    Our mighty 888 was designed specifically for chasing Bonefish but is just at home wrangling large freshwater species like Carp, Pike and monster Muskie 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 easy casting soul and incredible strength of S2 FastGlass™

  • S2 FastGlass™ - not your papa’s fiberglass fly rod
    Epic™ blanks are made to exacting standards using a proprietary Unidirectional S2-glass composite. Unlike other fiberglass fly rods, this material features a fully unidirectional fibre layup which aligns fibres longitudinally along the blank where they are most needed. This recipe, rolled to our Epic tapers combine silky smooth loading with trophy pulling power that we call FastGlass. The result is an incredibly strong, light and powerful tube with a crisp, precise response.

    Hand crafted one at a time.
    Each Epic fly rod is specifically hand made for you as it is ordered.  Please allow two to three weeks for us to do an Epic job for you. We’ll be in touch with a build time and shipping details as soon as we receive your order.

    • FastGlass fly rod blank with internally reenforced ferule system
    • High quality fiberglass rod tube in satin black
