The Epic® 480 G is a 4 weight custom tuned, light, and highly responsive fly rod designed for technical dry fly, emerger and nymph fishing for smaller trout, natives and Brookies.
Super stealthy in our non-reflective satin SnakeBelly™ finish, the 480G utilises industry leading Graphene nano resins to help create a lighter, stronger more responsive fly rod.
You'll be amazed at how light and responsive this fly rod is, helping you form some of the smoothest loops you've ever experienced.
Our SnakeBelly™ Satin finish is scratch and chip resistant making for an extremely tough and durable fly rod that is less prone to stress fractures caused by collisions with weighted flies.
Finished in smoke grey translucent wraps with contrasting red trims.
