If three's a crowd, four's a party!!!
Been meaning to fill in one of these report cards for quite some time. The problem is, which some of you reading and dabbling on which stick to throw in the cart on payday, is that I just don't have the time to sit down and write. Now you are probably wondering why, but I will try to explain here and maybe help you with some points that will help convince your wife why this rod is more important than groceries or the roof over your head. Since I last put that epoxy on the threads and slabbed up the first hog on this rod, I have not been able to put this rod down. Work has witnessed an increase in absent days, my family doesn't know who or where I am anymore. Words to describe this rod could be ones like, bomb ass, gnarly, accurate as shit(epic doesn't seem to mind some profanity, I heard), powerful and surprisingly classic feeling and crisp in its action. If you buy this 4 weight I doubt you will need to buy anymore rods, as this here is my daily driver now on all fish hogs or dinks. However, you will always desire more rods for more applications, but this one should be in your collection and potentially on your persons at all time.
Have not started work on blank.. It won't be until later this winter..
Finally having the chance to put the 476 FastGlass I built over the winter in action, I want to congratulate you on your outstanding work. The order was timely, the blank is beautiful and flawless and I was very pleased with the build. Fishing the 476 is a joy. It can make any cast with a degree of control I have experienced only with the finest of bamboo rods. I have previously considered 4 piece rods a sacrifice in action for convenience. This is not the case with your 476. I can find no "dead spots" and it is real plus hiking through woods and brush of Northern Michigan. I have fished over 50 seasons, largely with fiberglass rods and it is not lightly that I would say that you appear that have mastered the craft. Thank you.
Just received my blank. Very impressed with the quality, looking forward to building a great rod. Team was very helpful answering questions on my purchase
7’6’ 4wt - One Sweet Rod
Built out this rod last week, prior to a trip to Idaho to fly fish the South Fork of the Snake River. Fished with a 3” Tiemco Oracle click/pawl reel and a Cortland 444 Peach DT4F line. Landed several nice cutthroat and brown trout, up to 21 inches long. Rod performed admirably, casting well at short and intermediate distances with plenty of power to lift the line off the water, but still enough feel to telegraph those head shakes from the trout right to your hand. Swung soft hackles through the riffles with it and used it for careful presentation of dry flies at the head of various pools as well. Great blank, will be ordering more blanks in various weights from 4-6 from Swift.
