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.

BEARHAWK LIMITED EDITION FLY RODS The Bearhawk Limited Edition* line of fly rod building kits and fly rods are inspired by fishing trips in my friends Bearhawk airplane. We always get there fast and can land in a places where most planes simply can not go.
The slim beauty is one of the most popular fly fishing knots in use today. It is a great knot for connecting class tippets to shock tippets as well as tippet sections to butt sections. This knot is strong, easy to tie on the water, and has a very low profile.
It is the end of the fishing season in Patagonia Argentina. Two of my buddies, Marcos Hlace, Diego Soto and myself decided to fish for the mighty migratory trout at the upper Limay River, a must to at least once in a life time.
