Douglas Upstream 8'8" Great Rod
by David Lambroughton
I first became aware of the Douglas Upstream Series at George Anderson’s Shop in Livingston and saw some on the rack. I picked up the 8’8” 4 weight and it was love at first wiggle. It was the nice soft rod that I had been looking for. So I bought one and it immediately became my favorite rod of all time. It’s like a cane rod that weighs only 1.7 ounces. The dampening is perfect and it will cast the smoothest, wobble free line that you will ever see. It’s been the perfect rod for my favorite waters; Western Spring Creeks, the Cutthroat Streams of the Canadian Rockies, English Chalkstreams, or any small stream. When I let friends try it, including Tom McGuane and A.D. Maddox, they immediately bought one. I’ve cast hundreds or rods over the years and this rod has the “secret sauce” like no other. I love it so much, I bought a second one.
Great Backpack rod
