    Good, honest fly lines from the worlds best fly line manufacturer.

    One of the most common questions we get asked is "What fly line should I match to my Epic fly rod?" - Well, now you know, it's this one.

    Our Glassline fly lines are made by the worlds most experienced fly line manufacturer - Scientific Anglers.

    The tapers have been developed exclusively for us, but are based upon proven design principles time tested on rivers and lakes worldwide.

    True to Weight
    Each line complies with the American Fly Fishing Trade Association industry standard for its class. These are 'true and correct' fly lines - you get exactly what's written on the tin.

    Glassline Weight Forward
    Our weight forward lines are designed to turn over larger dry flies, weighted nymphs and streamers. The front taper is slightly more aggressive than our double taper lines. The exact profile of each of WF taper varies according to weight designation, with our six weight line having the most aggressive taper to help turnover big bushy flies and terrestrials.

    We reckon these lines are a perfect match for all our Epic fly rods be they Glass or Carbon Fibre, but they will also perform just as well on medium action fly rods from just about any manufacturer.


    • Printed line designation on the tip of each line for easy identification
    • Scientific Anglers AST (Advanced Shooting Technology) lubrication  
    • Compound front and rear tapers assist turnover and line control
    • Optic Green
    • Length 90ft - floating

Epic Glassline Weight Forward

It Works beautifully with my fast glass85. in lockdown but cant wait to try it on some local flathead or head up to Ebor for a trout or three. When is NZ opening up? I really am keen to get onto some big fish.

Epic Glassline WF-6F Review

I bought the line to go with my new Reference Fastglass II 686, and it’s a perfect fit. Turns over bigger streamers without effort, just what I was looking for.

Smooth as Glass

Just received the line and fished it with my Epic 6wt rod that I built from a kit. Line seems really smooth and responded well. It will get put to the test next week on one of Idaho’s premier rivers and I’m confident it will perform well.
