      I love it!

      My EPIC 476 was the first fly-rod I've bought blind, without checking it in the shop or directly on the water in advance. Besides this, I've never fished a glass-rod before and was a little nervous about it... I was only used to medium-fast or fast graphite rods (mostly Sage and Loop) When my rod arrived, I fell immediately in love: Beautifully crafted with it's perfectly wrapped rings and a translucent blank which seems to glowin the sunlight. The performance on the water was even better: During casting, there is not much difference to a graphite fly rod no flabby blank and no unnecessary false-casting. But the most fun is fighing the fish: You can feel nearly every movement, the rod flexes extremely well and still has enough power to tackle bigger fish and keep them away from heavy cover. Here is an example: I've hooked the fish just behind a bush and I had no problem, keeping it away from the branches: Final statement: This rod is definitely a keeper!

      First impressions

      I'll qualify (disqualify?) by stating I'm no pro, I own one other fly rod, a #7 TFO that I use sporadically in the salt, maybe because I was never having quite as much fun casting it as I thought I should be unless I got the rare opportunity to use it several days running. My little Salsa 476 (the Atomic Dragonfly) is a different beast. I was wary of paying that much sight unseen, but all of the reviews were so good and it sounded like what I wanted to add some fun to casting. For once I seem to have got it right, it's exactly as expected and more so. Apart from being a thing of beauty (I now have four children) it feels magic, not sure how to describe, like scrolling down a brand new smartphone, sort of buttery rather than that limp noodles feel of old glass. Had a couple of Barrio lines ready, so out we went for a fling. Still lots to learn, can't wait, but soon as I remembered to slow down a touch I was getting some nice loops, even with a bit of wind. I was having fun. Anyway, sorry to say it's maiden trip was less than successful: I tried for yellowfish on the Pungwe River (extreme eastern Zimbabwe) but, at low water, seems we'd been beaten by the poisoners and only saw a few small fish; and then for small tigerfish on the Upper Zambezi in a spot where we'd caught heaps on spinners and seen an African pike, which the Epic would have been perfect for. Long story short, rainy night, lots of flying ants out, and we subsequently saw very few fish at all, the greedy buggers! In real life, though, it cast the flies I was using nicely (not one wind knot!) and only touched the edge of my rookie abilities with the biggest bead heads (big woolly buggers), sure timing would soon sort that. I was just a bit surprised to find no keeper eye, seems like an odd omission, but am I missing something? No matter, I'm going to love getting to know this one for many years, I think whiting down the hill (I'm in Sydney) are next! Thanks Carl and the rest, great service too!

      What a surprise package this turned out to be. Beautifully finished, light in the hand, but easily capable of casting bead head nymphs and bulky dries. I've used it on the Waitaki and not felt under powered in any way. On the side streams it's perfect for a flick here and there where longer rods would just be too long. Great rod, highly recommended.

      Gold standard for trout rods
      "I live in the northeast part of the US and, when I'm not working, I'm chasing trout on small technical streams (e.g. Mossy Creek) in the east and bigger rivers out west like the Colorado, Blue, Arkansas or South Platte. This rod, the 690 C, is exceptional for any form of trout fishing. It's my favorite performance rod and is the benchmark against which any other rod should be evaluated. It's beautifully crafted and whether I'm fishing with friends or using a guide, everyone wants to give it a go and comes away impressed. I can't say enough good things about the production quality and the customer service I've received from Swift. Keep doing what you're doing - everyone is taking notice."
