Each rod in the Upstream line is designed to have a minimalist, but high functioning approach to backcountry fishing environments. The challenge of both close casting and designing a rod that will control your line, and fly with authority, is a balance that Upstream strikes with ease.
Each rod starts with a high modulus blank and is finished with a cork cap, ring reel seat and a natural Tonkin Bamboo color accentuated by clear wraps. A lightweight 1 5/8 brushed aluminum rod tube and sock are included with each rod.
The 7’6” 6pc. 3wt. is the perfect rod for someone traveling or trying to pack small, it’s one of the few 6 pc rods that is fun to cast. The 8’8” 4wt is a more traditional rod at 4 pcs. but is one of the best small stream trout rods I’ve ever used, it’s perfect for fishing in Yellowstone National Park.
Pick up a Douglas Upstream rod and you will want to get on the water and try this new approach to traditional light line angling!
