The Upstream series of fly rods from Douglas Outdoors brings four unique, ultra-lite fly rods to the river. These are light-medium to full flex action rods that will make you smile as soon as you hold one in your hand, and giggle while landing the first fish. Each rod is designed to have a minimum, but high function approach to bush and upcountry fishing environments (see deflection chart for action comparison). The challenge of both close casting and designing a rod that will control your line, fly and catch with authority, is a balance that Upstream strikes with ease. Each of these high modulus blanks are finished with cork cap, slide-ring reel seats and a natural Tonkin Bamboo color way with clear wraps. Hand fitted spigot ferrules insure a seamless transfer of feel and power between sections. A light weight 1 5/8" brushed aluminum rod tube and sock are included with each rod.
