This review for our famous 686 Ready to Wrap Fly Rod Kit takes the cake so far! (Yes, it's from a verified customer)

If you are even vaguely interested in building your own fly rod, our kits are a guaranteed success.

J. Winston said: The name Epic couldn't be more perfect!

Well, I've been fishing this rods for 2.5 weeks since completing the build of my 686 (Green). Not only is the rod F&CKING EPIC, but it casts tight loops, very accurate caster, has a great feel and response, and the rod has a great backbone when needed. Pretty much everyone who's cast the rods yells out expletives followed by awesome, Epic, gnarly, amazing, or many similar synonyms. Not only is the rod beautiful, it functions perfectly. Thanks Swift for making such a great product, it's obvious you all care a great deal about building a beautiful rod and more importantly a F**KING AWESOME rod which is fit for the Fly Fishing GODS! Fiberglass fly-rodders beware, these things are like drugs! Very addictive!

Perhaps that’s too literal an interpretation, but the whole fly rod and reel balance exercise is actually pretty pointless, after-all, when is the fly rod balanced? - standing in the carpark balanced on a finger with no line out?

"Native fish are often indicator species whose health tells us much about the waters they live in. In this film we will look at the survival challenges these fish have or have had and the successes we're having in managing them, examining working solutions. Factors adversely affecting native fish around the world are often the same, such as over fishing, invasive species, habitat loss, etc"
