Each rod is designed to have a minimum, but high function approach to bush and upcountry fishing environments. 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, ring reel seats and a natural Tonkin Bamboo color way with clear wraps. A light weight 1 5/8” brushed aluminum rod tube and sock are included with each rod. 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!
