Epic Fastglass Fly Rods
These rods are awesome. I have been fishing one of the 6 weights myself lately, and I love it. I have liked fiberglass rods for a long time, but they always seemed like niche rods that were best suited for small streams and small fish. The Epic Fastglass is a daily driver. It is the only fiberglass rod that I have fished that has the backbone needed for the Missouri River. I would feel confident if it was the only rod in my boat. It can do it all.
I have used it for nymphing and streamers, but it really excels for throwing dry flies. The 6 weight Epic is perfect for throwing hoppers and chubbies. The action is similar to a mid-flex graphite rod. It casts kinda like a funky Winston with a hotrod paint job.
If you are the type who likes to hike to your secret fishing spots, Epic also makes a 7’6″ 5 piece backpacking rod. John has been fishing one of these in the backcountry and loving it.
