Swift Epic 580. In progress.

Here is a very special Swift Epic project I started a few days ago.

This one was very long anticipated since a cool norwegian guy contacted me a few months ago saying some great words about my work. I am humbled and happy to have folks that truly apreciate the amount work I'm putting in building these rods. Makes my life easier and work more enjoyable.

Once it's finished, supposing that it will be an extremely beautiful rod, wich I hope it will, by my standards and of course by his, it will head to its new home in Norway where it will cast dries to wild browns.

I will review this orange beauty in the field myself this summer and hope to do some more cool photos in action with it.

Stay close for the finished rod soon!

Hi George,

I wanted you to know that I just received your last Epic 580 build from Cameron at TFM for a demo. It is a beautiful build and casts wonderfully. I will be fishing with it this weekend on Hat Creek, a spring creek here in Northern California this weekend. I think it might be the perfect rod for the job. I will send you some photos of your rod on the other side of the world!
