Press Release From Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters:
I’d like to give you a heads up about an exciting event coming up at the Leland ranch in Sonoma. On Saturday, July 23rd,Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters will be hosting Bryce Tedford of Beulah Fly Rods for a Beulah Demo Day. Bryce will give a presentation on Beulah, followed by a demo period where guests can cast the rods on our ponds and casting greens. The demo day begins at 11:30am and lasts until 3:30pm. Bryce will present on switch rods: how and when to use them, and how to line them. As the first company to market a full line of switch rods, Beulah is really ahead of the game when it comes to the sometimes confusing topic of switch rods. Many people also have questions about how to line their spey rods, and with so many options available, it can get confusing. Beulah’s Tonic (Skagit) and Elixir (Scandi) series of lines make it easy to line your Beulah rod with the perfectly matched line. They are one of very few rod companies to produce their own lines, and it’s another sign of their commitment to their rods and to your time on the water.
This is a great opportunity for anyone with an interest in fly fishing to get the scoop on one of fly fishing’s freshest and most exciting companies. Leland is proud to be one of only three premier shops in the country selling Beulah. Many of us fish with them, and it’s obvious from the first look that an incredible amount of time and effort goes into the testing and design of each one. Not only are they beautiful, but they are among the toughest and most fishable rods out there, thanks in no small part to the incredible amount of testing abuse put on them by the Beulah staff in Baja and on their home waters on Oregon’s Rogue River. Here are a couple of links for to our Beulah pages, and there is additional information on Beulah below:
Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters invites you to a rod demo day for Beulah Fly Rods at our Sonoma Leland Ranch. Beulah Fly Rods is a boutique company dedicated to on-the-water design for their line of fly rods whether for fresh water, saltwater & surf or switch & spey. Headquartered on the banks of the Rogue River in Oregon, this small company of fishing fanatics likes to push the envelope of technology by producing durable and high performance rods. With only 35 rods in the Beulah line up, youa€™ll get the chance to see and feel the unique craftsmanship of this great rod making company. Each rod taper is designed individually by Beulah Fly Rods to match the challenges, conditions and species encountered on your next fly fishing expedition. Leland is proud to be one of three premium dealers in the United States selling rods made by Beulah.
Beulah will present a talk on the switch rod: what is the best situation to use a switch rod, how to properly cast a switch rod, how to pick the right switch rod for the fishing situation and what line set up is best for a switch rod. Being the first to produce a full line of switch rods, Beulah focuses on their diverse functionality by giving them a custom appearance and user friendly action. Beulah will also demystify the topic of fly lines with their Tonic and Elixir lines. Using two broad categories and two basic tapers, a Skagit model and a Scandinavian model, Beulah fly lines offer new and experienced casters a straightforward set of options for outfitting their favorite rod.
Following the presentation the complete line up of Beulah rods will be available for Leland customers to demo. From Beulah’s single hand line for freshwater, to their saltwater and surf rods and all the way to switch and spey, you’ll get the chance to try out some amazing rods from an amazing rod company!
2010 marks the fifth anniversary of Beulah Fly Rods. Creating a new fly rod company is a decision that has been called a lot of things, but easy is not one of them. With the help of guides, fisherman, custom rod builders and a little luck, Beulah has managed to find a home in a very competitive industry. Five years ago we set out to create high performance, aesthetically superior products that could compete with anything on the market and offer them at a fair price. Judging by the response, we have done just that and more!!!
From the beginning we have produced rods that we were excited to fish even if it was outside the mainstream. In an effort to cover any fishing situation, we currently make 35 specifically designed rods that offer a full range of fly rods including single hand, salt, spey and a complete line of original switch rods. Our rods offer time tested technology along with cutting edge technology depending on the series you choose to use, both our Classic series & Platinum series are engineered to satisfy the most avid angler in performance and appearance. In addition to our rods, Beulah offers a full series of Spey/Switch lines & heads to compliment our two handed rod series.
Our marketing plan has always been based around true grass roots efforts and creating personal relationships with customers, fly shops and people who share our love of the sport. Thank you for letting us be a part of your fly fishing experience. Because of you we get to do what we love to do. Wea€™ll never loose sight of that fact. Here’s to the next five years…
