  • Epic 476 - 4wt fiberglass fly rod

    Looking for a shorter fly rod to fish in tight confined creeks but still want the backbone and pulling power of a larger rod? The 476 is the real deal.

    Our most fun casting rod (can we say that?), the 476 boxes well above it's weight, easily horsing out fish in the 2 - 3 kg range (that's 3 to 6 lbs)

    The 476 is a fast, lively, and extremely accurate fly rod perfect for small stream and spring creek fishing

    Length: 7'6"

    4 wt 476 FastGlass -- Great Rod

    I love the rod! The action is perfect for soft presentations. I used it to fish the San Juan (in Northern New Mexico) with great success. Using a 9 foot 5X leader, I had no trouble landing 16 to 18 inch trout, which are big for me. I can't recommend this rod enough. And also it's beautifully made. Thank you.

    Epic 476

    The quality is excellent!! The blank is beautiful, each parts look very cool as well. The rod action also feels very nice. this is my first time to use fast glass, it's gonna be my favorite near future after catching my first fish. It was the shame that the delivery was delay...

    Beautiful Fly Rod

    Shipping was fast, casts like a dream, just beautiful. 5 stars from me!

  • FastGlass II
    All Epic "Glass" rods are produced from industry leading 8 micron Unidirectional S-2 Glass. This next generation fiber 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 tighter, more precise and stronger fly rods. 

    SnakeBelly
    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 durable.

    SureFit Ferule
    Break a tip? we've got you covered  This ferule system is so precise that breakages can be addressed by simply sending out the replacement part. Gone are the days of having to return a broken section.

    Handcrafted one at a time - especially for you
    Choose the options you'd like on your Epic fly rod and we'll build it for you with tender loving care right here in our Wanaka Studio. Each Studio built fly rod is handcrafted specifically for you from start to finish and each is identified by a unique laser engraved winding check registered against your name in our owners database.

    Make it personal
    Add your name name or inscription and we'll hand paint it on your fly rod. 

    Workmanship
    The level or craftsmanship on each Epic fly rod is unrivalled. You will not see a better built fly rod anywhere, better components, better workmanship, better attention to detail.

    Built Epic Tough
    Epic glass rods are incredibly tough. Our S2 FastGlass II has a far higher strength-to-weight ratio than Carbon fibre (graphite) rods. Epic FastGlass rods can endure more acute and severe bends than the equivalent Carbon fibre or even regular S2 glass, tip sections are stronger and far less susceptible to breakages due to high-sticking and problematic rod angles when pulling against load.
