Platinum Series Spey Rod 5wt
Beulah Platinum Spey Series 11’7″ 5wt. 4 Piece
11’7” 5 weight
A true “trout” spey seems like a great idea. At Beulah we had a hard time wrapping our minds around the idea that a 5 weight spey rod needing 380-400 grain load was actually fun for trout. So, we created our newly released 11’7” 5 weight Platinum! You’ll find a sweet spot between 250-300 grains depending on your line choice. As Emeril would say, “BAMMM!” Now you’re definitely having fun chasing fins!!! Fish Redsides on the Deschutes employing soft hackles on a floating line or small to medium streamer patterns w/ sink tips on the Yakima, blitz down to the Rogue, Klamath and Trinity later in the season fishing Half Pounders with the possibility of mature 3-7 pound Steelies. Truly a casting dream and a blast to fish our new 5 weight Platinum makes a perfect trout spey and is ready for that surprise “trophy” fish.
