Fly rod and fly reels combos for fly fishing

Robert - USA

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.

premium quality fly fishing rods made in New Zealand

Richard - USA

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.
