Bob Meiser has been in the forefront of popularizing and refining blank designs for the Switch Rod concept of fly rods since the mid 1990s. His expertise with this unique family of rods is well established within the two handed rod community.
Bob's original concept has been universally accepted over the past decade and teaming up with Mike Kinney in design and application for these new rods has now taken the concept to the next level. TFO has used their proprietary Axiom material lay-up process for these blanks (kevlar in the pre-preg). These are extremely lightweight, durable, thoughtfully designed fly rods with superb performance......Best defined simply as: "Totally efficient delivery tools."
"Switch Rods" are multi-task fly rods specifically designed to allow a variety of both single and two handed caster options. The primary goal of the switch rod is to allow the caster the ability to achieve maximum targeted forward distance with the least amount of expended energy. Deer Creek Switch rods feature deep translucent blue blanks accentuated with silver script and copper tipping, sculpted Flor grade cork and decorative burl grips, gun-metal up-locking reel seats with cushioned hoods and large titanium oxide stripping guides. Each rod is marked with design factored grain windows to aid the angler in line selection.
We are really excited about the new Deer Creek Switch Rods from TFO! These things are really cool and open up some new and exciting fly fishing opportunities everywhere.
