Superlight 299

Another one of these beauties I just finished. 

Ultralight feeling rod with a lot of power down low and light tip section for tippet protection. Slightly oversized snake guides help minimise leader sticking to the blank.

These are the ultimate euro-nymphing sticks available. They also double as dry fly rods if conditions call for it.

Classic grade build with a beautiful color matching, burled maple wood insert - uplocking bronze hardware reel seat and slim western grip. I have another 296 blank available and ready to build.

Thanks for looking!

Swift Epic 476 Amber

Heirloom grade Epic 476 Amber. Bamboo style appointments, exquisite Bellinger NS hardware, Struble coffee agate stripping guide and EcoLight snake guides, wrapped in cinnamon silk. This rod goes to Jay Lee in Holland, who is an FFF certified casting instructor and excellent fly tier, flyfishing blogger and friend to be reviewed, test casted etc. If this rod doesn't stay in Holland, it might become available. To me, the 476 casts as good as it gets. Perfect progressive action, forgiving and  easy to cast with great loop control in close or long. I've enjoyed taking it on my annual alpine lake trip this summer. Thanks for looking! #glassisnotdead
