ROD: Winston Alpha+ 990-4
These fast-action rods were specifically designed to cast heavy and oversized lines, as well as large, bulky and weighted flies. Unlike other fast action rods in the category, the Alpha+ series (5-10wt) load deeper and recover faster to access extra reserve power in the lower sections, minimizing false casts and maximizing lifting strength.
REEL: Hatch Iconic 9+
The new Hatch Iconic retains much of the styling long associated with the brand, yet is packed with new innovations and design, resulting in another timeless classic that will quickly become everyone’s favorite Hatch Reel.
LINE: Scientific Anglers Amplitude Grand Slam Fly Line
The Scientific Anglers Amplitude Grand Slam fly line is a premium fly fishing line designed for saltwater fishing. It is specifically designed to help anglers cast large, wind-resistant flies accurately and at a distance, making it easier to catch fish in challenging saltwater environments. One of the key features of the Amplitude Grand Slam fly line is its AST Plus slickness additive, which helps the line shoot farther and float higher than other fly lines.
