The Epic hand ferruled Katana rod tube.

Everything we do is different, better. Our rod tube is no exception. Introducing the Epic hand ferruled 'Katana' rod tube in translucent glass or black glass. Light, tough, and just bloody clever.

Epic fiberglass rod tubes

Screw cap free, you'll never again have to jam a rod sock back into the tube like an overstuffed turkey. Never again will you ponder how the hell to fit all that shit in there like some ancient Chinese puzzle! Gone are the days of getting the rod sock jammed in the cap thread (my pet hate). Say goodbye to hunting for tube caps rolling around in the back of your truck.

We've designed the ferrule in such a way that it will always hold the cap firmly in place - no matter how much it wears, no matter how much it's used.

Screw caps are so yesterday.

Freedom!

And it just so happens that by fluke of design ;-) our end cap holds your favourite adult beverage just nicely.

Fly Fishing & Fly Casting - Tailing Loops And How To Cure Them

October 13, 2021

Having seen a few tails and created more than my fair share - most entirely involuntarily - I think it best to keep things relatively simple. After-all, we're all about fly fishing rather than any in-depth analysis of casting physics.
Fly fishing and certainly fly casting is most certainly the sport of exceptions and in order to attempt to explain anything in fly casting you tend to have to generalise  -and that’s what i’m about to do.
