R.L. Winston Air 2 Rods

R.L. Winston


Winston Air 2 fly rods are the next generation of Winston's Freshwater Air rods. These are fast action fly rods with classic Winston feel and a smoothness that just makes you want to go trout fishing.  Winston Air 2 rods are very lightweight and have great "in-hand appeal" due to the use of Winston's new S-2000 high modulus graphite material and a new Boron configuration for more power and faster tip recovery.  

Winston Air 2 fly rods excel at short to medium casting distances and fly casting accuracy.  They are perfect for dry fly, light nymphing, and light streamer days on the water.  When you need to bomb some line out, however, the lower end of the Air 2 rods won't let you down.  There is still plenty of power for chucking into the wind or that extra long cast to a distant riser.  

Here is what Winston has to say about their Air fly rods:

The next generation of all-around freshwater fly rods (3wt-6wt). These rods can do anything – present tiny dry flies to wary trout on flat water, cast a heavy streamer to the far bank in the wind, launch the entire line when you need it, and make quick, accurate close-range shots. From high stick nymphing, pounding the banks from the boat, or wet wading, the new AIR 2 is a pack rod, a travel rod, a beautiful rod, and an all-around rod. It’s the new Winston. When you can only bring one rod…the amazing new Boron AIR 2. You won’t want to leave home without it. Now is the time.
