"What can I say, the kit is great. Every thing is top quality from each component, the craftsmanship and even the instructions. I waited a long time to make this purchase and I could not be happier. The service I received both prior and after this purchase was also top rate. I love the concept of being able to buy a high quality kit and being able to build it yourself. Already have plans to purchase another kit for a winter build. Thank you to everyone on the Epic Team." ~ Bradley Reed

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.
