Platinum Switch Rod 5wt
Beulah Platinum Switch 10′ 5wt 4 Piece
The Beulah Platinum Switch rod 5 wt will impress even the most discerning trout fly fisherman. The action on our new 10’ 5 weight Platinum Switch Fly Rod is a progressive flexing, fast recovery fly rod. Designed to excel with traditional overhead or nymphing techniques and with excellent Spey casting ability. Weighing in at a mere 5 ounces, this will be a great match anywhere trout reside. This is a true trout switch rod that will not leave you feeling over gunned on a small stream, and will reach out to those spots you could not reach on bigger water. The Beulah 10′ 5wt Switch rod will be excellent fishing anything from size #20 BWO’s on 16’ leaders, with 7x tippets, to #4 Streamer fishing on medium and large sized trout streams. We built our 10’ 5 weight Switch rod with short fore and aft grips, making this rod perfect for a multitude of trout fly fishing tactics, and a fly rod that feels excellent as either a single hand rod or ultra light Spey rod.
