Things have been incredibly busy of late. Designing theEpic fly rod blanksand getting them to market seems to have been all consuming. There's been little time for fly fishing, but given that we've had such a bad run of summer weather I don't really feel like I've missed out on too much.
That all changed this week with a run of perfect weather and the arrival of fly fishing mate and fellow casting intructor Simon Zarifeh.
It was the perfect opportunity to get out of the office and take the new "So Blue" Epic 686 and the Lunar fly reel prototype out for a spin.
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.
