Scott Fly Rods


About the Shop

Flyshop is both an Online and a Bricks and Mortar fly sop and this is now our 10th year trading. Was Incorporated as a Company in 2009.

We put the best of everything into our fly rods, that’s what makes them so damn good.

At Swift we believe in producing the very highest quality product we can. We believe buying cheap is a poor investment, it's bad for you, bad for the industry and bad for the planet. Epic fly rods are not only exquisite they are built tough to last a lifetime.
Our goal is that you will be passing your Epic onto your kids.
Let someone else do cheap - we do excellent.
