There is little more addicting in the angling world than swinging a fly and coaxing a take from a bright Steelhead or Salmon that has just entered a coastal river system. Fresh in from the ocean these fish can take many casts to find, and a lot of skill and luck to land. A rugged coastal stream with a steep gradient can make the challenge even more intense. The Beulah 12' 4" - #8-weigh was designed to meet this challenge. Light yet stout, this rod will allow you to cast in tight quarters using heavy tips and weighted flies with the potential to cover miles of water without fatiguing. With extra power in reserve, the 12' 4" - #8-weight Platinum Spey rod casts intruders and T-14 like most rods casts a dry fly.
The power and flex of this rod will also make it an excellent candidate for two hand casting in the surf either Spey or two hand overhead.
