Welcome to The Swift Fly Fishing Company!
One of the most common questions we get asked is "What fly line should I match to my Epic fly rod?" - Well, now you know, it's this one.
Our Glassline fly lines are made by the worlds most experienced fly line manufacturer - Scientific Anglers.
The tapers have been developed exclusively for us, but are based upon proven design principles time tested on rivers and lakes worldwide.
True to WeightEach line complies with the American Fly Fishing Trade Association industry standard for its class. These are 'true and correct' fly lines - you get exactly what's written on the tin.
Glassline Weight ForwardOur weight forward lines are designed to turn over larger dry flies, weighted nymphs and streamers. The front taper is slightly more aggressive than our double taper lines. The exact profile of each of WF taper varies according to weight designation, with our six weight line having the most aggressive taper to help turnover big bushy flies and terrestrials.
We reckon these lines are a perfect match for all our Epic fly rods be they Glass or Carbon Fibre, but they will also perform just as well on medium action fly rods form just about any manufacturer.
I was disappointed that the doesn't have welded loops. I should have asked prior to purchase. At the least I would like to see a reel end loop.
My new Epic Glassline weight forward line facilitates smooth casting with good distance even when pushing relatively heavy streamers. Importantly it also loads the rod for short accurate casts with good presentation of light flies. When used in combination with the Stroft GTM tapered leaders it provides a great combination of quality products.
Like the name of the fly line!
Epic mean everything.
Really enjoy that fly line. Its worth the price 100% sure!
I don't use an epic rod, but its work perfectly with my materials and I m really content to bought it.
Works perfectly with the 686, so smooth!!
True to weight. If you own an Epic Fast Glass do yourself a favour and buy the line designed for it.
A good solid weight forward. Perfect for chucking heavy/bulky flies and in windy conditions and bigger water. Smooth casting, shoots well. Two thumbs up.
I was running a number of 6 weight lines on my 686, lookin for the best line , all performing great. But I had no idea how much better It could have been. The glass line is at home in most applications, and suprised me the most with weighted nymph rigs and streamers. Im laying out 15 foot leaders with 4mm tungsten bombs and big fluffy indicators and punching mouse patterns into the horizon with ease, And then to switch to a unweighted size 16 nymph and felt equally impressed with the performace in close and at distance. By far the most fun I have had casting on any combo. This is the one line you get with a 686.
Well now, this is the first line I have used that lives up to it's marketing blurb and beyond it. Another one out of the "Epic Hat" !
This line is a confidence booster. The weight feels magically light compared to other brands, but it shoots out to pleasing distances perfectly.
It also has the least "Line Memory" I have ever come across, pretty much non existent, which is a huge plus for me.
A great line at an excellent price.
