Epic 580 Amber

I’ve decided for some of my stock builds I’m going back to basics… my custom rods over the years have become more and more detailed but I still love a simple, well made, and well appointed fly rod.  Frankly, I miss building these types of rods as I sometimes get lost in the minutiae.  Looking back through old photos, this looks a lot like the rods I was making when I started on this glass journey 10 years ago.

This Amber Epic features a zebrawood seat w/ simple, blued C&R hardware (made in-house), 6″ wells grip, vintage Mildrum 9mm stripper, Snake Brand guides, and a silver tube featuring my logo and cap label.

A classy yet modern rod that’s not afraid to get dirty and will cast like a dream. Oh, the color by FAR my favorite.  Has to be seen in person to be appreciated.

$645 shipped and PP in US.


Glass Dubbing Needles




These needles are crafted from the butt section cutoffs from previously built glass rods.  The needles feature custom-machined brass hardware with touches that compliment my fly rod build hardware (knurling, 3D bullseye end cap).  Like my fly rods, each is unique and built start to finish individually so each piece fits flawlessly together.

When ordering please specify which you would like by number.  If a few would be acceptable please indicate multiple numbers in case others are sold but not marked as such.

$85 each incl. shipping in US; International will ship USPS Flat Rate Small Box at buyer expense
