Our friends over at Riversmith just announced the introduction of the Swiftcast, a modular fly rod holder for fishing rafts - purpose-built to protect your fly rod. If you’re looking to replace your do-it-yourself rod holder or are interested in making modifications to your raft and frame this year, you might want to check this out.
The Swiftcast was designed and manufactured to solve a problem that many raft anglers face on the water: how to fish as efficiently as possible while protecting a fly rod that is not being used. This versatile rod holder was designed for quick assembly out of the box and can be mounted and deployed to almost any rafting frame. You can use one or more Swiftcast Rod Holders on your boat depending on how many rods need to be stored and they can be mounted universally and configured for your particular needs.
• Universal mounting to any raft frame and raft size
• Holds a single fly rod – up to 10ft in length and up to 10 weight reel/line
• Elastic cord for 100% security in rapids
• Attach inside or outside of oar tower
• Can be paired together in-line or bi-directional
• Curved or straight tube options
Swiftcast Rod Holders can be pre-ordered today but will not be shipped for delivery until May 1st, 2023.
Here is additional information to learn more about the Swiftcast Rod Holder as well as a short video that highlights the assembly and mounting of the Swiftcast .
