The Mighty Boca Grande FastGlass Fly Rod

A Heavyweight without the heavy weight.
Classy, glassy and an absolute ass kicker. The mighty Boca Grande is an incredibly tough and resilient 12 weight fly rod.

Lets be be frank here. 12 weight graphite rods tend to be as stiff as broomsticks, far from enjoyable to cast and get one under serious load and they're prone to exploding. (Carbon fibre experiences what is technically termed "Catastrophic failure" - Glass Fibre does not)

We wanted to build an extremely tough 12 weight fly rod that was enjoyable & fun to cast and could easily pull about 24lbs / 11 kg.

The Blank.
The Boca blank is a marvel of composites engineering. Our prime design consideration was to keep weight down while delivering fast recovery speed. Fully unidirectional S2 FastGlass delivers super strength and resilience without the weight.

The Shiny Bits. 
The components on the rod had to be the best we could source so we went for 3 premium Titanium stripping guides fitted with Japanese SiC inserts. We fit the rest of the blank out in Snake Brand dark nickel snakes - these are the most salt resistant guides we could find (Salt fog tests by Snake Brand prove it)

Ferrule System.
Each ferrule is internally reinforced with a small additional flag of glass fibre material, each ferule is then over wrapped with a magnum length Japanese silk wrap and then finished with three coats of premium epoxy finish.

Reel Seat.
Our famous Epic alloy reel seat is a one piece CNC machined work of art. This reel seat will outlast you, your boat and your guide. Your kids will be fishing with this fly rod.

Grip.
The Boca is fitted with our wickedly comfortable modified Full Wells grip - this thing is so comfortable you'll want to sleep in it. And like everything we do, it has substance to it - this grip is not one of those arty fart hipster slim grips that look good but kill your hand. This is something to really get your mitts around!

The Finish.
Each Boca is painted in luscious Aqua using a two pot marine grade paint system. And the final step? - we polish each rod AND rod tube with Mothers California Gold®  Brazilian Carnauba Wax. No kidding.

This is the most beautiful, most functional fly rod you will ever own.


Each handcrafted Boca Grande Fly rod features:

  • Unique fully unidirectional S2 Glass Fibre blank (FastGlass)
  • Internally reinforced ferrule system
  • 3 x Titanium stripper guides with Japanese SiC inserts - Rust proof
  • Rust proof Snake Brand dark nickel Universal guides, USA
  • Our world famous fiberglass rod tube
  • Hand sewn rod sock
  • Finest quality Portuguese cork grip, our wickedly good Full Wells / Ritz design
  • Large cork fighting butt (no shitty closed cell foam to be found in our workshop)
  • Epic reel seat in Titanium or black finish

    SO EPIC

    Where homage, performance, style, and quality collide. I am beyond impress and satisfied with my 12wt Boca Grande - EPIC rod. From Mako Sharks to Yellowfin Tuna, this rod has done me well. I recommend this rod to anyone.

    No Tarpon in the Rocky Mountains

    So i won't be using the Boca Grande until I get to Belize next year, unless global climate change occurs a little faster than anticipated. However, it is a lovely rod, and seems to perform well on the grass of the local park...

    This is one hell of a rod

    I received my studio built Boca Grande a few days before Christmas. As I opened my new toy, the first thing I noticed is the quality. The build, finish, cork, reel seat, are all flawless. This is the nicest build I have seen on any rod. The finish is amazing. Top end hardware and the build itself is a piece of art. The Japanese silk exposes the feet of all the guides. Truly beautiful. After getting down to Nicaragua for my guiding season in late January, I have finally had a chance to get some casts in. The rod is fast compared to what I thought it would be! This was a pleasant surprise as it has no problem launching a Rio outbound short 12wt line. The rod casts incredibly smooth. There is little to no tip shake and it loads smoothly well into the butt section. The rod is a little on the heavy side compared to graphite rods, but that is expected and its not a tank by any means. Fighting fish on the Boca Grande so far has been a real treat its responsive and sensitive. The rod communicates whats happening at the end of your line . Still waiting to get a Tarpon on it though. Tarpon season is just around the corner. Thanks Epic. You knocked this one out of the park!

    Light, Lively, Beautiful

    If I didn't know it was glass I would have called it for a graphite rod. The Boca is so light and lively and the finish is absolutely gorgeous, this is a serious glass stick. 5 stars Swift

    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."
