The rise in popularity of Spey rods over the last decade demonstrated to trout fishermen the usefulness of two-handed casting techniques and presentations, but who needs a 16-foot rod for trout? Enter the switch rod, which offers the best of both worlds—allowing you to make conventional, single-handed casts or two-handed, Spey-style casts when your backcast room is limited. A switch rod also works better when you need extra rod length for mending and line control. Saltwater anglers have found that longer switch rods make it easier to cast over the surf, as well, enabling the angler to reach cruising fish beyond the breakers.


 
The Helios Switch fly fishing rod is a versatile solution for the serious angler.
