The versatile, compact two-handed fly rod

A Switch fly rod is simply the most adaptable fly rod available today.  It smartly bridges the gap between a longer two-handed or Spey fly rod and a standard, single-handed fly rod.  As steelhead are migratory, they are constantly being exposed to new water and ever-changing conditions.  These dynamic variables effect the steelhead and their attitude toward a fly.  Our well-designed British Columbia Switch Outfit offers the angler unlimited casting and rigging options, whether in open or tight casting situations.         

Leland Fly Rod Company's British Columbia Switch Rod...any cast, any time.

detdesc::Leland's British Columbia Switch Outfit is the most versatile steelhead system available.  Regardless of your casting or angling technique, this outfit can do it all.  If you fish medium to larger sized rivers, you'll now have the ability to cast overhead, underhand and Spey, while swinging or dead-drifting flies.  What's more, we've done all the work, so you won't have to piece together your own switch outfit hoping that all components work together.  Included in this outfit is easily the best casting switch rod you'll ever hope to hold.  We even include an extra tip...'cause you never know what lies ahead on a true steelhead adventure.  The line system we've assembled is from Airflo and includes both a Scandi Compact head (390 grain) for your near surface presentations and of course a Skagit Compact (450 grain) to carry the larger bugs in your fly box.  Rio's Mow Tip Kit (Medium) allows you to dial in just the right sink tip for your Skagit.  All heads cast amazingly well when attached to Airflo's Ridged Running Line.  We've professionally rigged this line system on the perfect fly reel, the Leland Reel Co. British Columbia Sea Run.  Physically and aesthetically balanced for just this rod.  You'll be enjoying every cast in every situation when chasing steelhead with our British Columbia Switch Outfit.

Finally, a Simple Sink Tip Solution for ALL Two-Handed Spey / Switch Rods

Forget about MOW tip, Versi-this or Poly-that.

Designed for a smooth transition from any skagit style head and even the lighter T-7 and T-10 tips work well on scandi heads.  Featuring 2.5' of intermediate material at the back end welded to 7.5' of T-sink which helps smooth out your cast and keeps you in the zone longer.  Looped at both ends for easy tip or fly changes.  Included are four color coded sink rate tips T-7 (white), T-10 (yellow), T-14 (brown) and T-18 (black) as a complete kit that come in a mesh zippered pouch. These work well on lighter switch rods from 5/6wt 10-11' all the way to 8/9wt 12-14' spey rods.

Airflo's new FLO tips are the only option for those using the newer intermediate skagit heads and complete the transition from head to fly by creating less sag in the line and more of a straight connection to the fish. Those new to two-handed casting love them because at 10' your never have to change your casting style and experienced casters have been asking for a sink tip like this for years!

detdesc::Leland on Scott Howell's Ska-Opper





Steelhead aren't bass. This everyone knows. But believe it or not, they'll hit a popping bug, and HARD, if you fish it right.

A few anglers, beginning with Scott himself, are beginning to fish the

Ska-Opper on steelhead streams from California to BC. On Scott's

homewater, the North Umpqua of southern Oregon, this fly is hands-down

the best way to find fish from June to September. By drawing

aggressive fish from their lies in almost any water type, the Ska-Opper

provides what has to be the most exciting way to fish for steelhead. No mere trout rise, steelhead explode on the Ska-Opper!
featdesc::
  • Steelhead Guru Scott Howell ties this fly for chugging on a tight swung line in the summer months
  • With a foam back, a deer hair body, and a gurgler-style lip, this fly is incredibly buoyant and throws a spout of water when chugged
  • Hot, aggressive steelhead will explode on it, leaving you speechless
  • Quick, sharp raises of the rod tip best chug this fly across a run
  • Fish with a clench knot, a loop knot, or a riffle hitch
  • Feel the weight of the fish before you lift into it
  • SIZES 2 and 4
Leland on Scott Howell The release of Skagit Master II is letting the world in on a secret that Leland has known for years: when it comes to steelheading experience, knowledge, and technique, Scott Howell is a resource without peer. We think he might just be the fishiest man alive. For almost four decades, Scott has been fishing the steelhead waters of the Pacific Rim, and for over 20 years, he's been guiding them professionally. He was one of the handful of Pacific Northwest anglers to pick up two-handed rods in the late 1980s, and was an integral part of the period of casting and line-design innovation known as the "Skagit Revolution." He was also part of the first batch of American guides to fish the unexplored steelhead rivers of Russia's Kamchatka peninsula. His wealth of experience and scope of expertise are difficult to fathom. For six years, when he was guiding in Alaska every summer, Scott made his home in British Columbia. One year, he promised himself we would fish every day, from the time he got home from Alaska in September, through the winter, until he went back the following May - and he did. Each year Scott spends over 300 days guiding on his homewaters in southern Oregon, with the vast majority of his bookings coming from repeat clients. Leland feels very fortunate to have this opportunity to work with Scott.

detdesc::Leland on Scott Howell's Ska-Opper


Steelhead aren't bass. This everyone knows. But believe it or not, they'll hit a popping bug, and HARD, if you fish it right.
A few anglers, beginning with Scott himself, are beginning to fish the
Ska-Opper on steelhead streams from California to BC. On Scott's
homewater, the North Umpqua of southern Oregon, this fly is hands-down
the best way to find fish from June to September. By drawing
aggressive fish from their lies in almost any water type, the Ska-Opper
provides what has to be the most exciting way to fish for steelhead. No mere trout rise, steelhead explode on the Ska-Opper!

  • Quick, sharp raises of the rod tip best chug this fly across a run
  • Fish with a clench knot, a loop knot, or a riffle hitch
