Fish On, Yvon

It has been many months in the planning and making but the Fine Tackle built Swift Fly Fishing Epic 580, which was chronicled in the "Inside The Process" series of posts on T.F.M., ultimately ended up in the hands of Yvon Chouinard of Patagonia.

The Epic 580 blank was the perfect medium for Christian Hörgren's clean rod building style and there might not be anyone who would appreciate it more than Yvon Chouinard.  Less is more, right?

The story of how this all came together has been posted on the Swift Fly Fishing Blog, so please follow up there for the details on Yvon Chouinard's thoughts on this fly rod along with a few more photographs as well.
