We get to work with a bunch of really great rod builders from all over the world and Sandy Nelson in Aberdeen, Scotland is certainly one of them.
Sandy has put together this sharp Epic build to help raise funds for the Wild Trout Trust in the UK, thanks for thinking of us and going for an Epic blank Sandy. The package is being topped off with a line from Mike Barrio at Barrio Fly Lines - cheers Mike!
I have built an Epic 480 in Nude for the upcoming Wild Trout Trust auction here in the UK. The auction runs with an online catalogue and on Ebay in early March (3-12).
The rod has a jade insert, a custom flor handle and is whipped in silk with fine wire rings, its being auctioned with a Swift Bag and Tube.
We'll keep you posted on our Facebook page with a link to the Auction when it goes live.

I was recently chatting to my buddy Brian O'Keefe about what he was up to over the winter months, and after having returned home from a balmy trip to Patagonia he was straight back into it - in the snow. In New Zealand, all but the most hardened anglers hang up their gear come winter, so I had a few questions.
