The Beulah Platinum Switch rod 5 wt will impress even the most discerning trout fly fisherman.

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.
