A Sandy Nelson custom-built rod based on the new Epic™ 370, 4-piece FastGlass™ II olive blank. This 7ft, 3-wt rod has a lovely, smooth but crisp action for dry fly fishing, especially geared towards smaller streams where tricky casts are the norm. Brilliant at tight quarters yet able to lay out a long leader when you find yourself out of the trees and the rising fish are at the far side of the glide. Supplied with a Tweed rod bag and Epic™ glass fibre tube. It has a bespoke Ray Lee Buckeye burl and nickel silver reel seat, with a light amber and nickel silver agate stripper. It is whipped in ghost style with invisible wraps and a 3-tone olive finishing wrap to the ferrules. Supplied with a matching Mike Barrio fly line.
