First: we actually FISH Winston fly rods. Some of the largest sellers of high end fishing tackle have little real world experience, they just move the product.

Second: we can be your one source for all of your fly fishing and fly tying needs. From Yeti Coolers to Simms and Patagonia gear; from giant saltwater hooks to the smallest spring creek fly hooks, we can provide every imaginable product you might be considering for the unfolding season, but only if these products have passed our own quality standards.

Third: we offer unsurpassed Customer Service, and this is on top of no sales tax and what we believe are unrivaled, cost effective domestic and international shipping rates.

These rods are light and nimble, a pleasure to fish. As good as these long rods are at nymphing, they also double up as great rods to fish dries and swing wets too. The main point Winston had in mind was to create a really exceptional ten foot rod that would excel as an indicatorless nymph rod; the great performance in other fly fishing styles is a bonus.
