At Swift we use premium components and time honoured techniques to handcraft the world's most remarkable fly rods.

At Swift we design and create small runs of unique, extremely high quality fly rods. You'll find none better.
Epic fly rods incorporate the classic designers concept of “Truth to the Material” which holds that any material should be used where it is most appropriate and its nature should not be hidden. With this ethos in mind each Epic fly rod uses components that we believe are the very best. Each fly rod is handcrafted one at a time in our small studio workshop - no detail is overlooked.
