The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

This is a fly rod for someone looking for a small creek and stream fly rod. I use this fly rod on the small wild Ozark streams in Missouri. This is the best fly rod and dry dropper fly rod for close ranges. Not the most versatile fly rod as it is suited for specific situations. This is for the fly fisherman looking for a fly rod for casting 10' - 30' in small water.

There are several options ranging anywhere from 1wt - 4wt in different lengths. Several of these also come in a 6-piece, making it a great option for keeping in your vehicle or will fit in most backpacks.

Ideal for
  • Best small stream fly rod on the market.
  • This is a fly rod that has packability in mind.
  • Full flex making the perfect dry fly rod.
Not ideal for
  • Not a fly rod for everyone.

The Douglas Upstream Fly Rod series lineup from Douglas Outdoors includes eight unique, ultra-light fly rods designed primarily for trout fishing. Each rod is designed for brushy and tight-quarters fishing environments. Designed for close casting, this rod still allows for line control. This is the rod for the angler who likes to get off the beaten path and fish small streams.

Key Features

  • Ring Reel Seat – This will securely hold the reel to the rod.
  • Rod Tube and Sock – The included sock and rod tube will protect the rod when not in use.
  • Slow Action – This action is designed for a more delicate presentation to wary fish.

Use Cases

  • 3wt 6ft 6in (Upstream 3662) is for small streams and creek fishing for trout.
  • 3wt 7ft (Upstream 3706) is for small streams and creek fishing for trout.
  • 3wt 7ft 3in (Upstream 3734) is a small stream trout rod.
  • 3wt 7ft 6in (Upstream 3766) is a good trout rod when using smaller dry flies.
  • 2wt 8ft (Upstream 2804) is an ultra light trout rod.
  • 3wt 8ft (Upstream 3806) is good trout rod.
  • 3wt 8ft 3in (Upstream 3834) is a good ultra light trout rod.
  • 3wt 8ft 8in (Upstream 4884) is a trout rod for medium size streams.

Matt was so easy to work with. He answered all my questions and there were many. He offered detailed explanations for his recommendations and sold me exactly what I needed, nothing more and nothing less. He also gave me valuable information regarding the sport of fly fishing and not just the current equipment I was seeking to buy. It was an amazing experience. Thanks Matt!

Rylyn found a sale for the Douglas Sky G rod and recommended it. He said that this was the best rod in the market and so I bought it. We paired it with monic Trout Master fly line. I was not disappointed at all! The rod feels intuitive and natural to cast. I could cast more accurately and a longer distance than I ever did with my previous rod.

I recently purchased a pair of waders through Curated with Stefan’s help. They were very helpful and able to get me exactly what I was looking. Items were perfect for my price range and the days by the streams/lakes that I will spend my time at. I enjoy researching products on my own, and was worried Curated might take the fun out of things, but this service is great for people like me also. Whether you have an idea of what you want, or are just getting started looking I would highly recommend Curated, and Stefan!

Found a great deal on Curated for a Daiwa fishing pole. My sales representative, Josh, was very helpful in answering questions before the order. Even more impressive was how he and Curated responded when the rod was delivered broken (not their fault). They immediately helped guide me through the return process which provided me the confidence that this would be resolved without issue. New rod is on the way and I have already ordered a second one!
