Why We Like The Alpha + Fly Rod

The aptly named Alpha+ from R.L. Winston Rod Co. is an aggressive fly rod designed for aggressive fish (read: carnivorous trout, musky, tarpon, dorado, bass, etc.). As such, it boasts a stiff blank and blisteringly fast action to push heavy lines and flies through gusty conditions and give us the upper hand needed to pull fish away from cutbanks and brush. What's more, each Alpha rod has a suggested grain window, like a spey or switch rod, to help us take the guesswork out of picking the right fly line for whichever rod we select.

  • Fast-action fly rod designed to cast heavy rigs to predatory fish
  • Reinforced ferrule increases lifting power when battling fish
  • Suggested grain window takes the guesswork out of selecting line
  • Hard chromed oversized snake guides for shooting fly line
  • Anodized reel seat with dual locking rings to keep reel secure
  • Graphite tube and embroidered sock protects fly rod while traveling
  • Item #WRC000F
