Fish Douglas Upstream Plus
The Upstream Plus is a very special rod. It's just the right size, right in the middle with just the right flex. With the many fiberglass rods on the market, we see rods that will flex into the cork when casting.
If you need to protect light tippet, if you know you don’t need to cast the whole line, if you’re fishing to spooky trout where delicacy is required, you’ll also need a rod that helps you out with those things instead of one you’re fighting with all day.
The Upstream Plus provides more power as compared to the Upstream fly rod. It gives the angler a nice up-locking reel seat to make sure that your reel stays put when fighting larger fish or during a long day on the water. Most importantly, it provides a slightly faster action that makes the Upstream Plus a great choice for people who want enough muscle to land the fish of a lifetime and enough finesse to use the tippet and flies required in tough, technical situations.
