New for the season, the Winston Air 2 Fly Rods represent the very best in fly rod design after more than 88 years of rod making. The first thing you notice when you pick up the Air is how light this rod is. This is due to the new S-2000 carbon fiber technology and the new HSR resin for a lighter, faster recovery rate while casting. These rods have the broadest casting range of any fly rods Winston has ever designed. The AIR 2 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.
This Winston AIR 2 386-4 fly rod is simply the finest trout rod on the market for smaller creeks and streams. The 3wt AIR 2 is buttery smooth and a true pleasure to cast. The AIR 2 3wt will make the most beautiful dry fly presentations, yet still has the backbone to toss small streamers. This versatile 3wt will do it all on small to mid-size rivers and put a huge smile on your face each time you do battle with a trout!

NEW! BAUER RVR 2/3 FLY REEL NEW RIO PREMIER GOLD FLY LINE (WF3-WF9)
Bauer RVR Fly Reel fishes as stellar as it looks, and looks stellar as
it fishes. New for the season, Bauer introduces the high performance RVR
high performance fly reel. In
development for two years, Bauer started with a groundbreaking and
beautifully modern design and quickly found out how challenging it was
to machine a reel this complex. No one had never seen anything like it.
The complexity and double anodized design of the RVR would prove too
difficult to achieve on a conventional 3-Axis machine, so Bauer sought
out the newest 5-Axis machines available. Bauer with the RVR series
continues the long tradition of design evolution, precision engineering,
and unmatched performance of fly reel when compared to others on the
market. Bauer, smoothest reels in the world!
2/3 reel was crafted to offer the versitility small stream anglers need
when negotiating tight quarters and the more "tactical" situations
often found when fishing these waters. the RVR 2/3 is built to manage
your line without adding significant weight while still being able to
put the breaks on when required.
- Diameter: 3.15"
- Weight: 4.6oz
- Line Wt: 2/3
- Capacity: WF3+ (50yards of 20lb)
for 2020! The RIO Gold has been the go-to trout line around the world
for many years, and for a multitude of fly fishers. The line has a long
head and back taper that give casters total line control and stability
at range - whether casting or mending. The unique profile is designed to
load a fly rod at close range, and has a front taper that delivers
perfect presentation of flies between sizes #22 and #2.

with SlickCast - RIO's proprietary coating technology. SlickCast creates
the slickest, most durable fly lines on the market. Lab tests show that
lines built with SlickCast have the least amount of friction ever
measured in a fly line. The RIO Gold is the ultimate all round, floating
line for the trout fly fisher.
