Trout Rivers - Premium Rod & Reel Outfit

R.L. Winston


Life is just too short to not have a killer trout rod.  Our Trout Rivers - Premium Outfit is exactly that.  One of the finest fly fishing rods on the market teamed with one of the 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 all-round trout rod for fishing average sized trout rivers.

Designed by Winston to be an all-round trout performer, the Winston Pure rods built with Winston's Boron lll technology are beautiful casting, moderate action rods. We think Winston nailed it with the Pure, for a beautiful looking and casting trout rod.  It is soft enough for close, accurate casts where delicacy rules, but definitely has the power to throw longer casts when needed.  The Winston Pure is perfect at mid-ranges where most trout casts happen and is a sheer joy to cast.  The 9-foot, 5-weight version of the Pure is included in this outfit and it is the most popular and most versatile size for most trout anglers.

We paired the R.L. Winston Pure 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 Trout won for this combo. We really like this line on lighter deep flexing rods like Winston Pure. It has a revised taper for delivering delicate presentations and is the ultimate line for chasing trout. The SA Trout floating line really excels with dry flies and smaller nymphs and streamers and casts like a dream on the Winston Pure 590-4.

This package is completed with a Rio Powerflex leader (9 foot 5X) already rigged onto the line so you are ready to tie a fly on and fish when your package arrives.

Trout beware!

     The Scientific Anglers Trout Floating Fly Line is one of the mainstays of the Scientific Anglers Mastery lineup.  For years, it has been a favorite line of ours for fishing lighter, softer rods with an emphasis on dry flies and smaller nymphs.  While this line is still versatile, it really shines on lighter trout fishing applications and can deliver small dry flies with absolute beauty.  It also mends like a champ and has a lighter, more delicate feel than many competing lines.
