This is a completed fly rod built on an 8′ 4-weight Epic FastGlass blank (Epic 480).

This is an exceptionally smooth casting fly rod with a moderate action, It is a true 4-weight.  The guides are dark nickel Snake Brand with one REC Recoil stripping guide. All are wrapped with silk thread and three thin coats of a two-part epoxy finish.  Each ferrule is wrapped and has alignment dots. Like most of my custom builds, it does not have a hook keeper.  Most customers have told me they don’t use them anyway.  It has one of my custom urethane foam core grip skinned with a carbonfiber/fiberglass weave – tough and easy to maintain.  I put these grips on all my personal rods now.

The price shipped to a US Address is $700 USD.  This includes a black Clear Creek aluminum rod tube (not shown) and a rod bag. Payments are processed through PayPal. Send an email to for information on a rod and reel combo outfit if you’d like to considering an Aspen Reel.
