Winston Alpha + 890-4 Fly Rod

 Was: $935.00 $795.00
Winston ALPHA+series rods will up your game against the Alpha fish lurking in the shadows. Carnivorous trout, thrashing bass, toothy pike and musky, jungle species like peacock bass, golden dorado and arapaima, and huge saltwater species like giant trevally and Tarpon. Pure and simple, these rods are for any fish that require extra-large fishing tools no matter the water type.

With wicked fast action, ALPHA+ rods are designed to cast aggressive rigs – including big flies, heavy lines, shooting heads and sinking tips with minimal false casts and effort.

ALPHA+ rods are extra-reinforced in the ferrule for ultimate lifting power, to turn fish away from heavy cover, and support all-day casting with big flies and fly lines.
