When it comes to fly fishing Arkansas’s White River in the Winter month its all about Strippin Streamers and hunting for giant Brown Trout! November & December is spawning time on this river and then comes the post spawning time when your larger Browns in the river go back to being predators and start looking for a big meal. Often its 8-10″ Rainbow trout! This is what brought us to Arkansas over a dz years ago and keeps us coming back!
We have excellent inventory of proven streamer rods and these are the ones that we are using every day here in Michigan and Arkansas. We keep in stock all the popular models of R.L. Winston Fly Rods and Echo Fly Rods. Also I’m building custom streamer rods for those looking for something special with wraps, components, reel seats and handles. I will have all these rods with me in my guide rods this Winter in Arkansas and for those that want to cast one or fish one before purchase we are sure setup for that as we stay right on the river.
When it comes to top of the line the Winston Alpha + is unbeatable! Our most popular model on the White River is the 9′ 8wt. The 7wt is very popular also and at times in extreme high water we go to the 9wt.
Currently we have these model models of the Alpha + in stock: 9′ 6wt, 9′ 7wt, 9′ 8wt, 9′ 9wt, 9′ 10wt and they can be purchased with Free Shipping at: https://michigan-streamside.com/product-category/fly-rods/winston-fly-rods/winston-alpha-fly-rods/
An amazingly light, crisp and balanced eight weight that is one of our go-to streamer rods for trout, steelhead, and Atlantic Salmon. From Michigan to Arkansas, this is the rod we most often put in a client’s hand when pursuing big fish.
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. Use the 5, 6 and 7wts for large trout and warmwater species, the 8 and 9wts for stripers, pike, and jungle species like golden dorado and peacock bass, and the over-built 10wt for musky, tarpon, and other big-time fish. All rods come with our graphite tube and logo rod sock.
