Watch the Rise Fishing video channel and you quickly realize their products are built for fisherman, by fisherman. The Blackwater Spey and Switch rods are available in sizes ranging from the 11′-6/7 weight to the 14′-9 weight. The lighter end models are ideal for small steelhead and salmon rivers where tight casting is a necessity. They even double as trout rods. The larger models have the casting power for big, open waters where distance casts and long runs are critical. They will punch through wind and deliver your flies on point.
The Blackwater Series rods are the ones you take on that big trip across the globe. They are versatile and can handle trips for steelhead in British Columbia, salmon in Alaska, Patagonia and around the globe. Use the shorter rods for steelhead on small great lakes tributaries and the longer ones for broad runs on Olympic Peninsula. The features speak for themselves:
