One of the very best aspects of our job is the huge kick we get seeing the fly rods customers create on their Epic blanks.
The creativity and endless possibilities always delight and surprise, and this rod is certainly no exception.
Pete Emmel's hitting the straps with this latest build, this is the first we've seen in the new Olive. Love it!
"Basically three days start to finish. What a beautiful stick. This one may stay in my quiver"
Cameron Mortenson from The Fiberglass Manifesto gives the lowdown on his Epic 686.
"the Epic 686 is (f#$%'ing) magic in my hands. This fly rod is responsive, quick to load, and a powerhouse that lays out very long accurate casts with relative ease."
So, you want to build your own custom fly rod? See how Brad did it.
