Hardy Swift Mk II Fly Reel


The original Swift was a favorite of professional fly fishermen. Men like Stuart Crofts and Dave Parker swore by the hard-working qualities of one of the toughest reels we'd ever made. The Swift MkII improves on the original - it's now even tougher, with a 4 millimeter screw reel seat for increased rigidity and a more durable metal handle. Internally, the legendary drag system has been re-examined, overhauled and improved. As Stuart Croft says, “It has a drag that’s spot on. It’s precise and I trust it absolutely - even though it spends more time in the water than out.” New for 2008 is the 900 size. This is a three to five weight reel that brings Swift performance to the light line angler.

 The disc brake features a rugged, central drag knob, perfect for easy adjustment and stopping big fish, while the floating clutch gives one of the easiest left- to righthand conversions made. On the two largest salmon reels we have even made the spools interchangeable. This allows you to buy one cage and vary the spool size to increase versatility.
