Really fun to build. I've casted it once and it was amazing.

Build Instructions

I've been building rods for 10 yrs and am always looking for ways to improve the way I do things. I'm right on par with your guide. Handy to for my apprentice though

It was just a book...

Fine except I completely disagree with the advice of using 10cc's of epoxy.

Custom Fly Rod Build Book

Outstanding. ALL the info you need in one easy concise reference, no more wasting time on the internet trying to sift through contradictory ‘how to’s’! Thanks so much!

Hey, internet sellers of the world! Take a page out of Swifts book!

Amazing experience. Such a slick website, super easy to browse, choose and buy you next lust item. I have NO idea how they shipped it so quickly and made it to me in a matter of days from Wanaka, NZ to London, UK! Wow. Just wow. I have yet to build the rod but it looks the part in the box alone ;) I am sure if I have any issues or questions that the people at Swift would be quick to respond. An amazing experience so far. Kia Ora! Simon
