Fly Fishing Rods
The Platinum series rods are produced in the U.S.A., and, being in a class all their own, they’ll stand out against any other rods on the market. Blessed with blanks constructed from a unique blend of high modulus graphite and an all carbon scrim, Beulah Platinum rods are light in the hand, powerful, and they cast better than rods selling for twice their price. Each rod within the series is tailored to the specific application for that rod, from a 3 weight that delivers a superbly delicate presentation to a 9’ 9” 7 weight that will go the distance in the wind. All Platinum Series rods are classically appointed with four color thread wraps, custom nickel silver hardware with Maple burl reel-seats (3-5 wt. rods), black anodized, double locking reel seat (6-7 wt. rods), high quality stripping guide / chrome over stainless steel snake guides, and hand selected Portuguese cork burls.

Beulah Blue Water Series
The Beulah Blue Water series rods are produed in the U.S.A., and are the ultimate big game rod for saltwater fly-fishing. These rods are built to withstand the toughest conditions imaginable, with a fast and responsive taper that will help achieve quick, long, and accurate casts. The secret to the strength and super fast recovery of these rods is the high modulus IM8 graphite from which the blanks are crafted. Each individual rod in this series was designed by saltwater guides to meet their casting and fishing needs, and all bluewater rods come equipped with salt resistant anodized aluminum reel-seats, and chrome over stainless snake guides, as well as an extra tip for insurance against mishaps with car doors, etc. All Beulah Bluewater fly rods come complete with a partitioned rod sock, Cordura covered protective tube, and a lifetime warranty. From Bonefish to Tarpon to Tuna, the Blue Water rods are up to the task, and will outlast and outperform rods selling for twice their price.
Bluewater 9’ 7/8 wt. 4 pc 5.0 oz.
This fast action rod is designed for the challenges of flats and inshore saltwater fly-fishing, with its crisp action capable of casting small to medium size flies accurately at 20 or 80 feet. Bias ply roll-up construction, and a progressive taper finishing with a fine tip give the Bluewater 7/8 power through out the rod and a snappy action for casting laser like loops with one back cast. Like all the Beulah Bluewater Series rods, this one stands at the head of its class. We recommend an Airflo Sniper #8—floating, intermediate, or D7 sinking—line for cold saltwater use, and the #8 Airflo Tropical Sniper, and #8 Bonefish lines for tropical saltwater.
Bluewater 9’ 8/9 wt. 4 pc 6.0 oz.
The 8/9 Blue Water is an excellent all-around flats and inshore rod for dealing with substantially sized fish. This very fast action rod is supurbe in the wind, with sink tip lines, small-medium-large flies, with more than enough power to land big fish. The 8/9 is the rod of choice for NE fishery of stripers, blues and albies, as well as a good choice for large bone fish and permit in tough conditions, and proven on bull redfish and freight train roosterfish. BANG! We recommend an Airflo Sniper #9—floating, intermediate, or D7 sinking—or 300 gr. Airflo Depthfinder for cold saltwater use, and the #9 Airflo Tropical Sniper, and #9 Airflo Ridge Tropical Bonefish lines for tropical saltwater conditions.
Bluewater 9’ 10/11 wt. 4 pc 7.0 oz.
This is the ultimate 10/11 weight rod, a serious Fly rod designed to leverage big fish from the bottom. While the Bluewater 10/11 will be used typically in a deep Saltwater environment, a fishing application for which just about NO fly rod was designed, this rod is capable of casting deep (really deep) into the backing. Also, given it takes more than just one cast to hook a giant Rooster, the 10/11 Bluewater has been designed to perform a quick line pick up for the rapid fire casting sometimes necessary to get a fly in front of a fish. The most striking thing about the 10/11 Bluewater rod is that for all its lifting power, it’s still a long-distance casting machine that can deliver a fly where it needs to be. This ultra fast action rod is an excellent choice for 20-100 lb. saltwater species like Tarpon, Dorado, Roosters, Jacks, etc. We recommend the Airflo Depthfinder Big Game-400 or 500 gr. Lines for the colder side of things, and the Airflo Tropical Sniper #11, or Airflo Tropical Tarpon #11 lines for tropical environs.
Note: 7 & 8 weight saltwater rods from Beulah’s Classic Guide series ($290.00) are also available.

Floating lines, long leaders, small dries, and nymphs are this rod’s forte. The 864 Brook rod features a sliding-band reel-seat with wood spacer (see above). We recommend a Cortland 444 Classic floating line with this rod—DT or WF.

Perhaps the most versatile trout rod size, the 865 is the go to choice of trout anglers everywhere.

Hexagraph Rod CompanyWith more than 50 years experience crafting fine split-cane fly rods, with famous customers like singer Bing Crosby and President Dwight D. Eisenhower (as well as a multitude of lesser known “brothers of the angle”) who appreciated fine craftsmanship and how it could enhance their fly-fishing experience, rod builder extraordinaire Walton Powell created the evolutionary Hexagraph fly-rod. Featured exclusively in the film version of A River Runs Through it, all Hexagraph rods duplicate the appearance and actions of fine, custom-built, split-cane fly rods, assembled by gluing six tapered sections together to form a solid rod-blank with the distinctive hexagonal cross-section of traditional split-cane fly rods.
The Hexagraph difference is that the material used is not aged Tonkin Cane, but primarily carbon-graphite, which makes the rods lighter, dramatically more durable, and about 20-30 % the cost of a quality split-cane fly rod. Since the rod’s cross-section is solid, not tubular, it won’t oval when bent (loose power), and since the rod’s guides are placed on a flat surface, the directional “roll-off” common to tubular rod blanks is eliminated. The foregoing, along with he full-flexing actions with variable loading points, allow the Hexagraph rod to cast at least two adjacent line weights, as well as exhibit the accuracy of a sniper riffle. The feeling one get fishing a Hexagraph is definitely pastoral, at one with the environment—not fighting it.
We, also, know these rods to be “lucky” (so don’t take advantage of the fish, release them). The rods offered below are our custom versions of the Hexagraph rods, and feature slightly “tweaked” actions, custom fitted Super-Swiss nickel-silver ferrules, custom shaped premium cork grips, reel-seats with premium wood inserts, lightweight stainless-steel guides, and a life-time warranty. All rods are 2-pice, and are furnished with a high quality rod-bag, and a black aluminum rod-tube with brass cap. While we try to keep at least one or two of each rod in stock, they’re essentially custom built for us, and it can take 4-6 weeks for us to replenish out of stock rods. Call for availability, or to reserve a rod being built.
