The Swift Fly Fishing Company Silk Wrapping Thread Review

Great thread!!!

This silk thread wraps easily and comes in some great colors. I’ve used the natural, blue, dark green and charteuse. The natural can be completely clear if you desire. The other colors look great translucent, or they also respond very well to color preserver. I’ve built a couple rods using the rod building kits and would use this silk thread for future builds as well

Building the 480 Carbon

Very good kit. I am always skeptical that there are enough supplies to finish the project. No skimping here, well thought out for the beginner for builder.

Third Epic rod build

Overall experience dealing with Swift Fly Fishing Co has been excellent. This is now my third Epic glass fly rod build . First purchase was a blank only and the next two purchases were rod building kits. The rod building kits were supplied with very precise instructions which made the whole process very simple and enjoyable. The first two blanks were sent very quickly whereas the third blank was a bit slow being sent but the actual shipping time was very good. Some of the feet on the snake guides needed re filing but this was not a big issue. The Epic metal reel seat holds all of my reels very securely. The other Epic reel seat with the fibreglass insert is also excellent however I placed masking tape shims under the insert which show through the glass insert. This is also not a big deal but wish had realised before glueing. As already stated, the instructions that come with the kits are excellent. The only thing that it didn’t cover was how to do the very thin trim wraps like on the factory builds. And yes, I would buy another Epic blank.
