About Swift Fly Fishing Company:
Swift is owned and run by On the Fly Productions (the Film & DVD People that make the fly fishing films like “Once in a Blue Moon”, “Itu’s Bones” and “Casts that Catch Fish”)
Swift was born to take over the stuff that a Film Production company probably shouldn’t be doing – Like developing, manufacturing and distributing funky fly fishing equipment and running a distribution company.
