Gear Review: The Swiftcast Universal Rod Holder

Here is a recent Swiftcast Raft Rod Holder product/gear review from one of Riversmith's newest Ambassadors, John Isola. Also, Swiftcasts will be available for ordering AND shipping May 1st, 2023!  

"I recently had the opportunity to try out the Swiftcast fly rod holder by Riversmith, and I am thrilled with its performance. As an avid angler who frequently fishes from a raft, I was in need of a reliable and convenient rod holder, and the Swiftcast delivered in every aspect.Installation of the SwiftCast was a breeze. It comes with clear instructions and all the necessary hardware, making the process quick and straightforward. The universal fit of the rod holder meant that it worked perfectly with my raft, securing my fly rods firmly in place and allowing me to focus on fishing without worrying about rod storage.

One of the standout features of the Swiftcast is its versatility. It accommodates fly rods up to 10 feet in length, making it suitable for a wide range of rod sizes. Whether I was using my 9-footer or my 10-foot steelhead rod, the Swiftcast held them securely in place, ensuring they were readily accessible whenever I needed to switch out my setups.Another aspect that impressed me was the ease of use of the Swiftcast. The quick-release mechanism allowed me to quickly stow or retrieve my rods with a simple one-handed operation, making it effortless to manage my gear while on the water. It kept my rods organized and protected, preventing any accidental damage or tangling.In terms of durability, the SwiftCast exceeded my expectations. It is made from high-quality materials that are built to withstand the rigors of fly fishing, including exposure to water, sun, and rough river conditions. Despite being exposed to constant use, the Swiftcast showed no signs of wear and tear, proving its durability and reliability.

I highly recommend the Swiftcast for its outstanding performance and durability. It has truly become an essential part of my fly fishing gear setup." - Riversmith Ambassador John Isola
