R.L. Winston Freshwater Air Rods

R.L. Winston


Winston Freshwater Air fly rods are medium-fast action fly rods with classic Winston feel and a smoothness that just makes you want to go trout fishing.  Winston Freshwater Air rods are very lightweight and have great "in-hand appeal" due to the use of advanced carbon fiber and Winston's new SuperSilica resin system.  

Winston Freshwater Air fly rods excel at short to medium casting distances and fly casting accuracy.  They are perfect for dry fly and light nymphing days on the water.  When you need to bomb some line out, however, the lower end of the Freshwater Air 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 Freshwater Air fly rods:

Winston Freshwater AIR™ fly rods represent the very best in fly rod design after more than 88 years of rodmaking. They feature a quick flex and recovery through the casting stroke without feeling stiff to make sure you enjoy every cast. This revolutionary fly rod design features Winston’s new SuperSilica resin system with high modulus Boron graphite. This allows significantly less weight, more liveliness and higher responsiveness for optimum presentation. These rods have the broadest casting range of any fly rods we have ever designed. Available in weights 3 through 6.
