Life is just too short to not have a killer setup for trout. Our Trout Rivers - R.L. Winston Air 2 Premium rod & reel Outfit that we have put together is exactly that. One of the finest fly rods on the market teamed with one of the finest, smoothest, most dependable reels around, and lined-up with one of our staff's favorite trout lines, this outfit is a sure-fire winner for anglers looking for the best of the best, and a rod and reel outfit that was put together by professionals that do this every day.

Winston's flagship rod series that was designed to tackle any trout fishing scenario. Winston Air 2  fly rods are beautiful casting, fast action rods with power and finesse. We think Winston nailed it with the Air 2. These beautiful looking rods cast like a dream. The Winston Air 2 5wt is a great all around trout rod, and is one of our staffs favorite rods on the rod rack at the shop. The Air 2 does it all exceptionally well. From a 25 foot cast with a size 18 BWO, to a 90 foot bomb with a streamer, to double nymph rigs.  

We paired the R.L. Winston Air 2 rod with the newly revised Ross San Miguel 4-5 reel. Classic aesthetics and modern performance are what you get with the Ross San Miguel. Over two decades since it first launched, the classic is back and better than ever. With a powerful carbon/stainless sealed drag, a canvas micarta handle that improves grip when its wet and the classic looks of the ever popular San Miguel, this reel is sure to please even the most picky of trout anglers. It has a large arbor for fast retrieval and reduced line memory. It has  feel and smoothness that is unrivaled.  The 4-5 San Miguel pairs up great and looks amazing on the Winston Pure 5wt.

We are line geeks here at PFF and continuously try different lines on different rods... and the Scientific Anglers Amplitude Infinity Smooth is the best line for the Air 2 in our opinion. The taper of the infinity feels great on the Air 2 from short casts to 90' bombs. The SA Amplitude Smooth Infinity is one of our best selling lines at the shop, and for good reason. The exceptional durability and slickness of this line is something that doesn't go unnoticed. It is also a very versatile fly line, that literally does everything. It has enough mass to turnover large streamers and heavy nymph rigs with indicators, and has a nice front taper that presents dry flies softly. The long rear taper of the Infinity also aids in making long casts and mending the line at distance.

This package is completed with a 3 pack of SA Absolute Trout 9' 4X leaders already rigged onto the line so you are ready to tie a fly on and fish when your package arrives.

Trout beware!
