I have lost count of all Epic 480 that has left my shop this last year. Here comes another build, this one appointed in a rather conservative way. Bellinger NS slide seat, full wells grip and chrome guides wrapped with Gossamer Java silk. The leather fly box holster comes from the extremely talented craftsman Chris Fox in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This beautiful piece of gear shows a De Young-style trout pattern, and the quality is outstanding. It's a great honor for me to feature Chris work together with one of my builds. Don't forget to support all independent craftsmen in the fly fishing industry. It might be a bit more expensive, but the soul you get is priceless...
