Douglas Outdoors, the New York company launched a year ago by Jim Murphy, has introduced the Upstream Fly Rod range, a selection of four rods designed for bush and upcountry environments.

Each of these ultra-light river rods is built on high modulus blanks in a natural bamboo colour and finished with clear wraps, a cork cap and ring reel seats.

Murphy, formerly President of Hardy North America, says the rods are perfect for both close casting and line control and bring a new approach to traditional light line angling.

The range is made up by:

  • Upstream 3734, 7’ 3”, #3, 1.42oz;
  • Upstream 2804, 8’, #2, 1.43oz;
  • Upstream 3834, 8’ 3”, #3, 1.59oz;
  • Upstream 4884, #4, 1.72oz.

All the rods are four-piece and come in a lightweight, brushed aluminium rod tube and sock.
