The Beulah Platinum 11' 8wt. Switch is an awesome all around salmon and steelhead stick. Fast action with a soft feel makes this rod incredible easy to cast and powerful enough to handle big silvers and steelhead.

Details


From Us:
The Beaulah Platinum Switch 8 wt. is one of our favorte rods for swinging flies and nymphing beads.  It does both exceptionally well.

The medium progressive action makes this rod easy to spey cast both skagit and scandi style lines. At the same time it single hand roll casts and over hand casts big nasty indicator/bead rigs with ease and mends line likes she's a true spey rod.  

Great for small tight coastal rivers, yet equally as good on river like the Kvichak or Kenai or Naknek.  Also a great stick for the Deschutes and others in the lower 48.
