Having a quality fly rod on the river is essential…why not carry it in style with the A.L. Swanson rod case? Made from the finest hardwoods, metals, shell and leather available by a master furniture maker, these tubes will not only keep your favorite rod safe during travel, but allow you to travel in style. 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.

Diameter: 3″
Length: 34″
Weight: 2 lbs.

Finished with a water-resistant varnish, the tube requires minimal to no care. The leather straps can be oiled with a leather conditioner, if needed. USA.

We welcome the opportunity to customize a rod case for you. Whether you need a longer length, larger diameter or a company logo inlaid on the cap – we have your back!
