A.L. SWANSON CRAFTSMAN
WHAT SETS THE A.L. SWANSON APART
The integrity of Al’s pieces is unprecedented. Within the fishing line you will find fly rod tubes and cases, landing nets, and fly boxes as mentioned above. Each tube is carefully sculpted using a variety of exotic hardwoods, metal, shell, and leather. Each case is made of eight staves, meticulously shaped and glued under pressure into an octagon. They are then mounted on a lathe and turned to a perfect cylinder, one at a time…by hand. Once coated with marine varnish, each case is polished to a buttery smooth finish that beckons your touch. They can accommodate a 4 piece 10′ rod, with custom lengths (for longer rods) available as well. Can you imagine being on the water with something this magnificent?
