Description

The very premise behind the development of the switch rod series was to meet the needs and request made to serious fly fishers. I am fortunate in that I am able to custom design fly rods for anglers that may open their fly fishing season in the Yukon, mid-season in the Gaspe, and end it in the Seychelles. I also feel that I am just as fortunate to meet the fly rod requirements of those anglers who may never feel the need to leave their own home waters such as I enjoy here in Southern Oregon. The one common truth that I have found within this brotherhood, whether they be far-flung adventurers, or home water week-enders is that they all share an equal and universal passion for their sport. As a fly fisher my self for over 50 years, and a rod builder/designer for over 30, I appreciate and thoroughly enjoy being asked to be so deeply involved in their chosen sport. It is this intimate involvement that has led me to the development of the switch rod series.

When married to the correct line systems, they will be effective for both two handed overhead and anchor point Spey deliveries. The ultra lite switch rods can utilize traditional single hand double haul, and single hand Spey deliveries as efficiently as they will to present classic two handed anchor point Spey deliveries.

Our philosophy on switch rods:

  • All fly rods fall into two families: They are either single handed fly rods, or they are two handed fly rods.
  • Switch rods are not a family of fly rods separate from single or two handed fly rods.
  • Two handed fly rods offer the caster a two handed grip assembly. This grip configuration does allow the use of the upper hand, and the additional assistance of the lower hand; Single handed fly rods do not allow this.
  • Bottom line: Switch rods are short two handed fly rods.
