Welcome to The Swift Fly Fishing Company!
One of the most common questions we get asked is "What fly line should I match to my Epic fly rod?" - Well, now you know, it's this one.
Our Glassline fly lines are made by the worlds most experienced fly line manufacturer - Scientific Anglers.
The tapers have been developed exclusively for us, but are based upon proven design principles time tested on rivers and lakes worldwide.
True to WeightEach line complies with the American Fly Fishing Trade Association industry standard for its class. These are 'true and correct' fly lines - you get exactly what's written on the tin.
Glassline Double TaperChoose our Glassline DT when presentation and stealth are important. They are great for delicate dry fly presentations, presenting emergers and are superb for roll casting.
We reckon these lines are a perfect match for all our Epic fly rods be they Glass or Carbon Fibre, but they will also perform just as well on medium action fly rods form just about any manufacturer.
The Glasslines are fantastic. they match Epic fiberglass rods perfectly and are true to weight. The double taper lines are very easy to roll cast and present the dry fly efficiently.
The line works very good with my Epic 476 and also with my Loop S1. The coating of the line is superb and shooting line is a pleasure. I had a successfully grayling fishing with it this autumn. Good work!
I purchased the 5wt DT line for a Redington Classic Trout rod with moderate action. As an absolute beginner I was cautious of moving from a WF to DT line, especially with all the conflicting info out there on the net. Your article on DT vs WF lines was a no-BS article that made me try the DT for small streams where I roll cast as much or more than I overhead cast. My roll casting accuracy and distance has improved dramatically but surprisingly so has my overhead casting. I think it's because I have greater control of the line over short delicate casts (less than 30') in pocket water as opposed to using a WF line suited for 30' plus casts that I rarely need to do. The price was also spot on compared to the myriad of lines out there that would make anyone think they're being developed for NASAs next mission to find trout on Mars. Your Glassline DT was spot on. I'll be back for more.
Awesome line for delicate presentations! Good slick coating that shoots well! Really nice colour that shows up well on the water
The DT glassline fit perfect with my Epic476. Smooth casting with perfect roll-over. Looking forward to more adventure with my nr. 1 flyrod and flyline.
exceptional service, fast delivery.
Epic DT 4 wt on a 5wt Hardy "Angel" 2
rod. This would have to be easily the
best line I have ever used on this rod.
Got my line in record time! Wonder if you guys have figured out how to go faster than lightspeed?? Looking forward to trying it on my 476.
Thanks guys for bringing the double taper back! I put my new Epic Glassline DT through it's paces paired with my Epic 580 and it was exactly what I was after... From close-in flick- and roll casts to long throws, it delivered all that I could ask for. Stoked!
Superb line for the 480!! Perfectly weighted for super smooth casting, particularly huge roll casts. Even for an amateur like me.
I also love how they are actually a 4wt line. Not a 6wt line in a 4wt box. It's just common sense!
Thanks Swift for bringing some sanity back into the industry so we can get out and do Epic shit!
Finally, a line that is really as labeled on the box. 5 is 5 and 6 is 6, etc. I have double tapers in 5 & 6 wt glasslines. Cast great with the Epic rods since they are also labeled with their correct weights! What a revolutionary idea, labeling something as it really is! Nearly unheard of these days in fly fishing marketing BS. Thanks so much, Swift. An honestly honest operation.
Readers of this should buy the Epic sh*t for this reason alone. It is all great stuff! Better than expected in my case, since all 4 rod blanks I have were bought sight unseen. Love them all. If you don't own one, you should, you are missing out.
Disclaimer, I don't not have any association with Swift beyond being a new, and very loyal customer; i.e., paying full fare for the goods.
Really like the way this line feels on my 480. Roll casts beautifully. Glad I made the purchase.
