    Clever as a cartload of monkeys

    The best 4wt Fiberglass fly rod blank money can buy - Now in FastGlass II™
    Looking for a shorter top quality fiberglass fly rod blank to fish in tight confined creeks but still want the backbone and pulling power of a much larger rod? - the 476 is the deal.
    The 476 is a powerful, light, lively and extremely accurate fly rod blank.

    Our most fun casting rod (can we say that?), the 476 boxes way above it's weight, easily horsing out fish in the 2 - 3 kg range (that's 3 to 6 lbs) - and yes, we've got plenty of pics to prove it.

    FastGlass II
    The Epic™ 476 is produced from industry leading Zentron 8 micron Unidirectional S-2 Glass. This next generationfiber is specifically engineered for fly rod production and features 8 micronfibers developed and produced in the USA. These fibres are almost half the diameter of other unidirectional materials, resulting in a tighter, more precise and stronger material. 

    SnakeBelly
    Not sanded and not unsanded. Our SnakeBelly™ finish is produced by a unique radial production process. 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 very durable.

    Sure Fit Ferule
    This ferule system is so precise that parts interchange between models. Gone are the days of having to return a broken section to the manufacturer or outlet where you purchased from. Breakages can be addressed by simply sending out the replacement part.

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.

Best Casting

When most builders are hung up on ridiculous candy colors its refreshing that at least one company can actually fly cast and knows how to make a great fly casting blank. Carl exceeds here, these are the best casting blanks out there.
