A perfect introduction to two-handed casting techniques, the Access 115-4 Tip-Flex Switch Rod is engineered to the performance standards of high-end switch rods, but comes with a price tag that's unbelievably low. Built on lightweight blanks and with an extended grip, the 11-foot 5-weight Access Switch fly rod can boom out overhand casts on expansive western rivers just as easily as it can help you roll cast your way out of thick cover. The extra length provides excellent line control, ideal for high-sticking, Czech nymphing, or swinging streamers for large browns. Never before has elite switch rod performance been available at this price. Made in USA.

Took it up to st marys glacier lake to try out their dry fly action and not only was I able to get my fly out far from 7-10 ft from the bank but I was able to precisely put my fly wherever I wanted it to go no matter what direction I aimed. Great precision and distance I was able to get. Definitely a great rod.

Casts just like i hoped it would. Usually after a few hours my shoulder would like me know i'm getting old, but not with this rod. Smooth, and Solid. Bought the outfit, but had to send the line back as it kept sinking 15' from the tip. Upgraded the line and can't wait to take it out again. One thing I didn't notice when purchased was it doesn't have a hook keeper. Not a deal breaker, but I walk a long ways to where I fish and it would be nice to have had one on it. I don't really want to hook the fly into the cork, or in one of the reel ports, but i guess I'll have to, or get an aftermarket one.
Most Excellent! -

It's time to get over the stigma that switch rods are only good for Steelhead and Salmon; this rod will allow you to "Access" (sorry for the pun) the entire trout river without sacrificing the feel and fun that a lightweight single-hand rod offers. This rod is ridiculously lightweight and has enough finesse to high-stick some nymphs or delicately place a dry fly on the surface and has enough power to bust a 60-foot cast to the other bank with ease and still have a 12-inch fish put a nice bend in the rod. The Hydros 3D switch line works great for standard trout nymph rigs and dry flies. Put a Mirage V large arbor on it (to accommodate the larger switch line) and the whole rig is unbelievably lightweight. You will have so much fun with this rod... I certainly do!
