Daiwa Silver Creek Stream Twitcher

The Daiwa Silver Creek Stream Twitcher spinning rods are an upgrade from the well known and well regarded Wise Stream Rods. They were designed with three main goals: (1) Pinpoint casting; (2) Imparting the desired action to the lure; and (3) providing different rod models designed specifically for different streams or different portions of a given stream, from narrow headwaters to wider rivers.

Daiwa introduced seven different models of the Stream Twitcher, of which I have chosen to carry four, the 38UL, 48L, 53UL and 56L. 

The Daiwa Silver Creek Stream Twitcher 38UL was designed for the headwaters, small (to very small) streams that are rarely fished because they are either hard to get to or hard to fish with the length rods most fishermen use.

The 38UL breaks down to under 23", making it convenient to take anywhere, whether inside your carry-on luggage or strapped to your backpack. It is short enough to use easily on streams where there just isn't room to cast a longer rod. It works beautifully for underhand pitches when there isn't even room for a sidearm cast.


For anglers who may be concerned that they might not be able to cast very far with such a short rod, rest assured you can cast as far as you would need to on a small stream. This brown trout hit a spoon cast to the head of a large pool.

A higher glass content (31%) gives the 38UL a flexible action to fish light lures well and still handle the occasional fish that is a bit (or a lot) larger than you expected..

The Stream Twitcher 48L was designed with a taper for fishing either floating or sinking minnows - aggressive casting to small targets in the headwaters and smaller, high gradient mountain streams where quick hook sets and controlling fish in fast currents are critical.

The Daiwa Silver Creek Stream Twitcher 53UL is the "all around" model for the mountain basin, where side-arm and back hand casts predominate. The sensitive tip allows you to work your lure effectively and keeps hooked fish hooked.

The Stream Twitcher 56L was designed for larger streams, where longer casts are required and slightly heavier lures are desired. The rod does equally well with nylon, fluorocarbon and PE lines.
