Switch Rods


These rods are extremely versatile, no matter if you fish on rivers or at the sea. With Switch rods you have the benefits of casting as with a double hand rod but can work the fly like a single hand rod, a real benefit in many fishing situations. These rods are designed to be fished with modern shooting heads to give you an opportunity to fish certain places much more efficiently compared with fishing them with long double hand rods or normal single handed rods.

Salmon Fly Reels
