Details

This outfit contains everything you need to get started with Switch Fly Fishing.

About the Shakespeare Oracle Switch Fly Rod
The Shakespeare Oracle Switch Fly Rod is one of the finest examples of a switch rod available. Fishing in Summer conditions for grilse or seatrout as a double or single handed fly rod, there can be nothing more accomplished for the job. This rod offers the best of all worlds in versatility especially with the two line weights available.

This switch rod is lightweight, four piece and is being acknowledged as a superb tool for beginners learning Spey casting without the daunting prospect of moving up to a 10/11 weight rod. The Oracle Switch is also becoming a thoroughly enjoyable rod for the most experienced of anglers.

These rods have a satin matt blank finish and also feature a traditional high quality AAA cork handle. Each handle has composite cork at each end to provide a longer lasting and durable handle for the rod.

These rods have smooth, ceramic lined eyes to make sure your fly line glides smoothly through the rod and also feature a keeper ring that allows you to wind your fly and line in tight when you're walking from place to place.

The rods have a subtle black and green shimmer throughout the design and a glistening shiny green accent colour near the base.

The Shakespeare Oracle Switch Fly Rods come in an 11ft length with different AFTM ratings available. Each rod comes with their own Cordura tube with a carry handle.

About the Shakespeare Oracle EXP Switch Fly Rods
The Shakespeare Oracle EXP Switch Fly Rod is a 6 piece switch rod that is ideal for the travelling angler and designed for small river salmon and sea trout where there are low branches and not much casting room.

Switch rods are very fashionable at the moment and popular for fishing on smaller rivers and when targeting sea trout and Grilse on bigger rivers in the summer. They are very useful when smaller flies and lighter lines are required to improve presentation.

They are called switch because being lightweight they can be cast single handed (like a normal single handed rod) or Spey cast using both hands using the built in extension handle. These rods excel in situations where longer two handed salmon rods are simply too big and where long single handed rods are tiresome to use.

The Oracle EXP Switch have proved to be very good in testing, one of Shakespeare's field testers, Jim Curry, took the 7/8 on a trip to Iceland. They never got it back as he loves it so much! Also the 6pc configuration makes them perfect for the travelling angler.
