    Super Smooth and Perfect Size

    I love the color, quality, and components of this super smooth little rod. Best of all it's the perfect length broken down into 5 pieces for backpacking in Colorado. I've already caught many fish from 5 to 20 inches on the rod and I love how fun it is to fish! Great balance between small-stream, small-fly technical, but enough backbone to cast hoppers and land large fish.

    So much better than Budget junk!

    Tried cheap glass rods from Blue Halo and Echo - total junk from China I believe, cast a buddies Epic and was sold. These are great rods

  • 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.

    Delivered direct to your door
    Once ordered it usually takes around two weeks to build your new fly rod, then we deliver priority tracked and insured courier direct to you door. We'll email you with tracking info as your rod leaves our studio workshop.
