Carl McNeil of Swift Fly Fishing sent this gorgeus Epic 580 blank to be built and then demoed through Cameron Mortenson with his T.F.M. Rod Loan Program.
The rod will be casted and fished across the US and will help people decide on what blank to choose for that one-of-a-kind fly rod.
The T.F.M. Swift Epic 580 was fitted to be a true "workhorse" of a five weight. It features Snake Brand Universal snake guides, chestnut silk wraps, a Lemke black anodized reel seat and walnut wood spacer. Grip is a flor grade half wells hand turned in the shop.
I'm looking forward to see and build more of these beauties in the future!
Feel free to inquire about an Epic blank/build and thank you for looking at my work!
