The Worlds Greatest Fly Rod Tube

While I've been quietly working away for months trying to deliver the perfect rod tube for our Epic lineup, our mate Chris Swadling over in Australia has well and truly trumped us!

The inside is sleeved by a full length PVC pipe and the very empty Whisky tubes are coated in a protective layer of - wait for it… Spar Vanish. (Nice to see you've given a 'tip O the cap' to tradition there Chris)

Oh, and Chris built a damn fine Epic to fit inside his new tube - I'm picking it was done before the rod tube was fully completed.
