*We are fortunate enough to receive many wonderfull reviews for our fly rods and they all mean a great deal to us. When a rod is reviewed by an angler & caster with real depth of experience it's something special.
"One word sums up my new 370 FastGlass, badass, if in fact that's a word... The best way I can describe it is, "where tech meets tradition." Never had I anticipated the arrival of a new fly rod more, and I currently own two dozen premium rods and have had another few dozen move through my personal inventory over the years. The rod exceeded all expectations and in every way - action, tracking, dampening, aesthetics, components, workmanship, packaging.
Clearly Epic has taken fiberglass rods to the next level
I've owned E-glass, S-glass, and now Unidirectional S-2 Glass. While all have their place, the Epic FastGlass is in a class all by itself as far as overall performance goes. Not truly fast, but faster than my other glass, and in a good way. Casts in tight, but can reach out. Roll-casts well. Haven't seen a weakness yet and don't expect to. Clearly Epic has taken fiberglass rods to the next level. Only problem is I now want more. Having limited my use of glass to small stream fishing in the past, I am now wondering what the right rod could do on my home river?"

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.
Double your line length in a single cast without false casting Any fly fisher knows that stripping in and lengthening – or “shooting” line – is part of the fly-fishing process. Understanding how and when to lengthen line will sharpen your shooting and make a significant difference in ease and performance
