    The Adventures of Falls In River by Mark Usyk

    When I was in about the first or second grade I had one of those plastic toy bow and arrow sets with the suction cup tips and a plastic knife in a vinyl sheath. I had a cheesy pair of moccasins too, and a flimsy rubber bladed tomahawk with a...

    4am Salt Dreams by Mark Usyk

    I open my eyes, but they refuse to focus. It’s dark. Where am I? I’ve got a sore neck and my head is pounding like someone’s put a stereo speaker in a metal 55gal drum, put the top on, and cranked the volume knob all the way up on some...

    The First Keeper of 2015 by Mark Usyk

    The Trout season of 2015 got a late start. It was an extremely frigid winter, days above zero were outnumbered by the days below, and I'm not just talking a couple degrees below zero either. To see twenty and thirty below on the thermometer failed to register any shock finally...

    I Have a Fishing Magazine in my Toolbox by Mark Usyk

    The living room floor's a battle field. Green army men and tan army men stand toe to toe, rifles trained on each other, the wounded and the dead lie everywhere. For a short while it looked as though the tans would prevail against stacked odds, but then there was a...

    Oriskany Creek Logic by Mark Usyk

        I stand in a stretch of the Oriskany Creek, staring down the Weeping Willow that’s attached to the other end of my fly line, a few tugs leading to a few furious shakes, leaves falling to the water and floating on the current as I make the decision to...

    Reflections of a Fly Rod by Mark Usyk

    It’s only 6 and a half feet of graphite and a handful of cork. It’s such a simple thing, not a complicated device by any means. Practically a stick in the simplest of descriptions. Yet to really immerse myself into the backstory of how this all came about, of what...

EPIC Fast Glass fiberglass fly rod 8 foot 4 weight

EPIC Fast Glass fiberglass fly rod 8 foot 4 weight

$444.00

Tell us what you think of this rod we just made. 

After seeing lots of EPIC builds on The Fiberglass Manifesto we decided to do one for us.

Notice the new wrap around spinner mayfly on the Amboina Burl Wood Reel Seat. Also the beautiful Agate Strip Guide. The rod is also made with single foot recoil guides. 

We photographed this rod with a special Abel Reel made for us in Bronze. This reel balances this rod perfect on one finger on the second to last cork ring. 

Subtle, the rod is accented in blood red next to the caramel main wraps.
