These fibres are almost half the diameter of other unidirectional materials, resulting in tighter, more precise and stronger fly rods.  SnakeBelly™SnakeBelly™ delivers the toughest exterior finish possible. After production, blanks are first painted and then clear coated. This two step process produces blanks that are incredibly scratch resistant and durable. SureFit Ferule™Break a tip? we've got you covered  This ferule system is so precise that breakages can be addressed by simply sending out the replacement part. Gone are the days of having to return a broken section. Built Epic ToughEpic glass rods are incredibly tough. Our S2 FastGlass II has a far higher strength-to-weight ratio than Carbon fibre (graphite) rods. Epic FastGlass rods can endure more acute and severe bends than the equivalent Carbon fibre or even regular S2 glass, tip sections are stronger and far less susceptible to breakages due to high-sticking and problematic rod angles when pulling against load.

Super Low Resin Systems.Utilising materials with resin content up to 30% less than conventional materials, Epic C series blanks are lighter and stronger. Low resin materials help increase bending limits & overall response. Multi Carbon Construction (Multi modulus).Using only the highest quality fabrics from the USA, Japan and Korea, up to five different types of carbon are used in each blank. Each type is placed at various parts of the blank to optimize strength and weight. Ultra-high modulus fibre boasts the highest tensile and compressive strength of any fibre in its class. Internal High Strength Ferrule.A high-strength internal ferrule is placed at each join to provide superior crush and split resistance.  Target Zero Fibre Alignment.Fibre alignment along the length of any blank is critical. Even the smallest deviation in fibre alignment from the axis of load will greatly reduce the strength of the blank.  Got questions? - Drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you.

Itu's Bones $19.95
Description Details Video Reviews Itu's Bones - A story about Bonefish. An uplifting story of learning and discovery. A Pacific Island, a fledgling fishery, a Bonefish netter and some of the worlds biggest Bonefish The film tells the story of expert Bonefish netter Itu (pronounced ee-too) Davey as he makes the journey from subsistence gill-netter to pro fly fishing guide. Itu's Bones is a compelling story that features gorgeous images of the Pacific and truly incredible Bonefish action on fly. (And these Bones are jumbo size) Featured in the Blue Ocean Film Festival (Finalist)Featured in the Raindance Film Festival Universal Format, plays all countries, all regions (Both PAL & NTSC) Run time: 90 minutes Format: 16:9 Language: English Official Trailer  Review From FlyLife Magazine "If you fly-fish and read magazines or surf the ’net, you’ve probably heard about a New Zealand film called Once in a Blue Moon. It was a landmark fly fishing film released a couple of years ago. It catapulted the genre out of being videos of guys catching fish, into proper ‘films’ about the fly fishing culture, psyche and life. On The Fly, the makers of that seminal film, have now gone a step further with the release of their latest production Itu’s Bones. The film follows the story of Itu (eetu) Davey, a Cook Islander whose family has netted the lagoon of Aitutaki for generations. With government moves afoot to protect bonefish from netting and to move towards a more sustainable, tourism-based fishery, Itu’s livelihood is under threat. (The background story will be familiar to those who have read the Brett Wolf/Tim Angeli contribution in FlyLife #67, the latest in a series of Cook Islands bonefish stories dating back to Greg Finney’s ‘Blue Lagoon Bonefish’, published in Autumn 2003 (FL#31)). Enter Carl McNeil. He embarks on a mission to help Itu become a bonefishing guide. Itu builds a flats boat, complete with poling and casting platforms. Carl uses his experience as a casting instructor (remember he also produced the Casts That Catch Fish DVD) to teach Itu to cast a fly. Together they hit the lagoon, endeavouring to combine Itu’s exceptional fish-spotting skills with Carl’s extensive fly-fishing knowledge to outwit the local bonefish. The end game is to establish an eco-friendly business for Itu and his brothers. Four tense days without a fish have them all on edge. Itu has invested his whole future in this venture. The fisheries authorities are watching, treating Itu as a test case for the viability of this scheme. The locals are not impressed because they regard bonefish as a delicacy, and have no concept of catch-and-release sport fishing. The film bares these hardships, showing the realities of blazing a new trail. It’s a refreshing format, much more than just an edit of catch after catch highlights. The pace of the film slows and you really start to feel the pressure that Carl and Itu are under. Just when you think it’s all about to stall, everything changes. The cinematography is gorgeous above and below the water, as you would expect from these guys. The story is engaging, the characters interesting (I want Itu’s mum to adopt me), and the conflicts between cultural traditions and sustainable eco-tourism are given sensitive treatment. I trust that you’re getting the picture that this is no ordinary fly-fishing film. It is a true documentary of the highest calibre. Throw in some enormous bone-fish, and you have a DVD that’s equally attractive to both non fly fishers and the most hard-core wavers of the rod."

Wyatt regards these flies as 'Trout Ammo' - His style in unconventional and yet extremely effective. Each fly is designed to be highly robust and simple to tie while presenting the essential triggers. FEATURING Volume One: Wyatts' famous Deer Hair Sedge: Mayfly variant and large terrestrial variant.

Buzzer, weighted and unweighted - Partridge and Hare - Damselfly - Fur Fly - Desolation Baitfish - Rubber legs Woolly Bugger - Magnum Zonker.   Bob Wyatt Bob Wyatt has fly-fished for trout in North America, Europe and New Zealand since the 1950s, and has been a regular writer for FlyLife, and Fly Fishing and Fly Tying magazines for many years.  His book, Trout Hunting, challenged some conventional thinking regarding how trout work, and presented some fresh insights on why some great old flies continue to catch fish after a century or more of increasing fishing pressure.  The reason is that, contrary to much expert opinion, trout are not getting smarter.  If presented well, some fly designs are basically irresistible to a feeding trout. Over fifty years of fly fishing has convinced Wyatt that a few basic designs will cover almost any fishing situation, and in most cases will catch fish better than specific patterns created for the so-called ‘selective trout’.  The reason they work so well is because of the way a trout’s brain works.  These fly designs are based on the most important ‘triggers’ to a trout’s feeding response – a fly’s size, shape and posture in the water.  In fact, Wyatt regards a suggestive impression of a trout’s food to be far more effective than a close copy imitation. Presentation is the key.  With these flies you can confidently fish for trout, anywhere they swim. Runtime: 90 mins each DVD Format: Universal, plays all countries (Both NTSC and PAL compatible) Bonus Content: Streamside chats with Bob.
