Epic 686 ready to wrap kit
This was meant to be a one off but now I'm trying to figure out what rods to sell to fund another build! I really enjoyed the process. The rod itself is a beast and may have retired my high end carbon 6wt. It has been perfect in a small snag infested stream for XL Brown Trout and in the harbour on hard fighting Kahawai. My next (ultimate) goal is a Yellowtail Kingfish which I would never dream of targeting on a 6wt carbon rod.
686 build kit
The kit is great. Every thing you’ll need to build a first class rod is provided. The cork grip is of the highest quality and I really like the new reel seat with the glass insert. The 686 is a wonderful big water rod it casts intermediate, full sink and floating lines equally well. Great for indicator fishing with multiple fly rigs in lakes and larger rivers. A amazing rod I look forward to fishing for many years.
686 for Steel
Just used my 686 fastglass II for the first time since building it a month ago. Roll casted indicator rig well, protected 3x tippet, 5 steelhead in the net including an 8 pounder
The 686 ready to wrap.
First I have to say, shipping was extremly fast. When I opened the box, my first impressions were... wow! Rod blank is so nice. Only thing I wish is a little bigger rod guides but hey. Can't wait to finish it and fish it next season.
Stoke level is high for this build
Fast shipping, lots of updates. Great info for rod building tips and tricks. Can’t wait to finish the rod and get it on the water
