Trevor's custom 580

We get to see some pretty amazing custom creations built on our blanks.  This custom Epic 580 by Trevor Bourne in the UK absolutely hits it out of the park. Not only is the build incredibly clever, detailed and very creative, it's absolutely beautiful. 

  • Epic 508 Olive.
  • Birchbark/maple burl/acrylic grip with rubberised cork trim.
  • Lemke reel seat with Buckeye burl spacer.

From Trevor

Hi, my name is Trevor Bourne from the UK,

Underground rod builder and avid fly fisherman.
