The Douglas Upstream Plus Fly Rod Series provides more power than the Douglas Upstream. It gives the angler a solid up-locking reel seat for fighting larger fish. 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.
The Douglas Upstream Fly Rod Series are very special rods. It’s just the right size, with just the right flex. If you need to protect light tippets, if you’re casting the whole line or short distances, if you’re fishing to spooky trout where delicacy is required, if you need precise cast between 20 and 70 feet, these rods can get it all done. The Upstream Plus Fly Rods are a casters dream. The time and effort spent fighting with your rods to make the right cast is a thing of the past.
