Epic review from George Minculete -Tightloop Fly Rods - The Swift Fly Fishing Company - Epic Fly Rods

If you've not seen Georges builds you're missing out on something special. What he does to our blanks is nothing short of wicked! ;)

 

Here's what he has to say about the Epics:

"When I first wiggled an Epic blank I just knew it will turn into an amazing rod. Shortly after the first rod was born I took it out on my local trout stream with a couple of friends to fish dry flies. They both tried the rod, one of them was a bamboo bum and the other a graphite fan. Long story short. At the end of the day, all three of us were blown away by the accuracy and smoothness of this rod. Very easy to cast a tight loop with it and make pinpoint casts to rising fish. They were both converted to the new Epic glass. And so was I."
