Epic Glassline Weight Forward

Line Weight
  • Good, honest fly lines from the worlds best fly line manufacturer.

    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 Weight
    Each 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 Forward
    Our 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.

    Features: 

    • Printed line designation on the tip of each line for easy identification
    • Scientific Anglers AST (Advanced Shooting Technology) lubrication  
    • Compound front and rear tapers assist turnover and line control
    • Optic Green
    • Length 90ft - floating

    Glassline WF6- the perfect 686 line

    The 686 throws a wide variety of lines, in my hands everything from DT-4 to WF-7, but the Glassline WF-6 is distinctly the best match. I'd been so happy with the performance with other lines, I was surprised that the Glassline could be that much better.

    Exceptional. Had it out on the Cardrona in the weekend in small water it was very accurate and presented perfectly.

    Epic Glasslines

    After purchasing an Epic 5DT line I was amazed at the smoothness and my ability to achieve delicate presentations up to the 70 ft mark and beyond, well on the grass anyway. The blurb stated no line memory and it is right, the line comes up off the grass and shoots through the guides effortlessly and I'm no expert. I was impressed enough to purchase an Epic 5WF line as well. Although the two lines have different casting characteristics I could not be more pleased and would recommend these lines to anyone. Can't wait to get up to Tassies highland lakes and put them to use with my Epic 590C. Peter Harley, Pipers Brook, Tasmania.

    A line that "sings"

    I recently acquired the Epic glass line 5# to match with my Epic S-glass 580. The line weight about 147 grains at 30', very close to AFTMA standard fro a 5#. There is no difference in the coloring of the line between the head section and the running line. This and the fact that the other technical spec. (head length, total head weight) were not printed on the box are the only reasons I did not rate this line as 5 stars. On the first cast of the 580 the line went out beautifully over 80' (measured). The line "sings" in the guide: i suspect a very subtile "textured" line that creates a distinctive sound when working the line. I was not bothered at all, some may... The line shoots VERY well: it glides through the guides and delivers fly with a very nice presentation at all length. The line cast very nicely. I did test cast it together with my usual line and I rapidly favored the epic witch is now my go to... A subsequent casting session in a nearby pound allowed me to test cast with rollcast and alike It behaves correctly but not exceptionally in my hands. I suspect the head profile to be more adapted for overhead cast in different situations than a rearward taper, more adapted to rollcast. Yet dynamic rollcasts of over 50' were not too difficult and the overall performance fits my needs. Nice product. Time will tell how it handles continuous usage.

    Epic Glassline WF 6 Weight Line

    Very nice line. I bought it when I purchased my Epic 686 glass rod and I've fished it 4 times already. I heard Bruce Richards helped design this line, so I had to have it!
