Meet the Winston Alpha+, R.L. Winston's Fastest action freshwater rod, designed for big fish, big flies and conditions that put you and your gear to the test! Throwing huge streamers to lunker brown trout, heavy double stonefly nymph rigs, giant pike flies for toothy critters, or GT's on the flats to Arapaima in the jungle is exactly what these rods were made for! 

Winston Alpha+ fly rods excel with over weighted fly lines like the RIO Outbound Short, RIO Elite Predator, Scientific Anglers Amplitude Smooth Anadro, RIO Bonefish QuickShooter, Airflo Tropical Punch, RIO Grand.

Here is what Winston has to say about their Alpha + fly rods:

Welcome to ALPHA+.  A Winston rod series designed to 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 have been designed to cast aggressive rigs – including big flies, heavy lines, shooting heads and sinking tips. These rods will cast these big rigs further with minimal false casts and effort.

Built like none other. These game changing rods use unique features not found in any other series, like a designated grain window for each model to help anglers sort through the wide offering of over-weighted lines available on the market today. This helps eliminate the confusion associated with lines over-weighted by 1 or 2 line weights. Simply match a lines grain window to the appropriate Alpha model to suit your needs and fishing style

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.
