The Beulah Platinum Switch rod 5 wt will impress even the most discerning trout fly fisherman. The action on our new 10’ 5 weight Platinum Switch Fly Rod is a progressive flexing, fast recovery fly rod. 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. We built our 10’ 5 weight Switch rod with short fore and aft grips, making this rod perfect for a multitude of trout fly fishing tactics, and a fly rod that feels excellent as either a single hand rod or ultra light Spey rod.

Shayne Wadlow –
Wow! This is the first Beulah I purchased and because of it I have just about every other rod in the Beulah stable. I call it the ‘crow bar’. This rod literally will do anything from high stick nymphing to indicator rigs and long leaders to launching pretty good sized streamers across decent sized rivers or even delicately presenting soft hackles down and across. Two hand or single hand it casts so effortlessly you will forget you even have it in your hand. If you want one rod that will do almost anything you can imagine to present your flies, this is it! Check out a video by Andrew Moy; Switch rods for trout, Part 1 and 2, it sold me and I never regretted it.
