To catch steelhead and salmon, you need to swim the fly at the right angle, the right depth, and the right speed. The right rod can help solve that puzzle.
But these are the fish of a thousand casts, so preferences also play a big role. You can fish the same fish in the same water with a single hander, a short two hander, or the very longest rods. You can fish floating line, sinking line, dry flies, wet flies, traditional swing, riffle hitch, nymph and indicator. Long belly, Skagit, Scandi. The variations are endless. We get it, so we made a series of rods that satisfy your every preference.
Swing rods were meticulously developed and are loaded with technology and attention to detail to meet those demands.
Fished and tested by professional anglers and expert casters from NZ, Alaska, the Great Lakes, Canada, Norway, the Pacific Northwest to the Northeast, we left no stone unturned making sure each rod was fine-tuned for its intended purpose.
Like all Scott fly rods, Swing rods are hand-crafted, one at a time, in Montrose, Colorado.
