NEW! WINSTON AIR 2 490-4 FLY ROD : 4WT 9'0"
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 2 490-4 fly rod is simply the finest all-purpose 4wt trout rod on the market. This 4wt AIR 2 delivers buttery smooth power and is a true pleasure to cast. This AIR 2 4wt presents a beautiful dry fly, whether it is 20ft or 60ft, and will still throw a nymph rig or small streamers. This versatile 4wt will do it all on small to medium size rivers. Just try to wipe the smile off your face when the perfect cast turns into an epic battle!

This rod does very well with SA Infinity Trout line, and while it feels light for even a 4 wt., it has enough power to play 20" trout. The handle is smaller than that of most rods.
