The Upstream PLUS provides more power than the Douglas Upstream ultra-lite series. 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 Upstream PLUS is a very special rod. Its just the right size, with just the right flex. If you need to protect light tippets, if youre casting the whole line or short distances, if youre 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 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.
