The 888 Ready to Wrap Fly Rod Kit.

The very best components available, all designed to fit together seamlessly. No Reaming, No Drilling, No Sanding - All Epic.

The mighty 888 was designed specifically for chasing Big Bonefish but is just at home wrangling large freshwater species too. Given there’s not a flat where the wind doesn’t blow we’ve given the 888 an extra powerful butt section, strong tip and fast recovery rate to help punch a line out into those skinny water breezes.

The Epic 888 has gained cult status with Redfish, Pike, Musky and Golden Dorado anglers world wide. If you're chasing big toothy courtiers - this is the weapon of choice.

Regarded by industry pro's and glass aficionados world wide as the best glass 8wt made, the Epic 888 presents beautifully but packs a bad ass attitude. Perfect for tossing big flies, swinging streamers and saltwater work. 

The 888 is as strong as an ox, super smooth and extremely versatile.

Each Kit contains:
  • Genuine Epic branded uplocking reel seat with color matched fiberglass insert
  • Genuine Epic fly rod blank + Matching reel seat insert
  • High quality fiberglass rod tube + Premium hand sewn rod sock
  • Premium AAA cork grip + Epic reel seat
  • Snake guide set + High quality stripper guide
  • Glue kit (preloaded syringes, grip & tip epoxy, brushes, mixing cups & full instructions)
  • China-graph marking pencil + Rod stands
  • Comprehensive 50 page build book with step by step instructions
  • Stickers / Decals
  • *Japanese Silk threads. Each kit includes natural 212 silk (we include instructions on how to use this to make perfectly clear ghost wraps) and black thread for trims. These default threads can be substituted for other stock colours on request. View Stock Thread Colours

Super Impressed!

I just recently received my 8wt fast glass rod and reel combo. The ordering process, shipment communication, build quality, and packaging care have been first class. I can’t wait to get out and try this new rig on the water. Thanks for your commitment to excellence.

A Real Performer

Nice feeling rod took it to NZ in January and it performed really well. When I needed soft presentations it was perfect but still handled everything else. It was great to be able to pack it down and put it in my back pack for those long walk ins.

Chris - Montana

Mind Blown

I am mind blown. Not only is the rod amazing, but after I had an issue with a damaged section of my brand new rod, I contacted Epic and was treated like a real person who was jist trying to get back on the water. Within jist a few days they responded, resolved and mailed my my replacement parts. That kind of respect and customer service is second to none and I will gladly purchase from them again.
