NEW! WINSTON AIR 2 905-4 FLY ROD : 5WT 9'0"
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 2 590-4 fly rod is simply the finest all-purpose trout rod on the market. This 5wt AIR 2 delivers buttery smooth power and is a true pleasure to cast. This AIR 2 5wt presents a beautiful dry fly, whether it is 20ft or 70ft, and will still throw a streamer to the bank. This versatile 5wt will do it all on small to medium size rivers

I've not been using Winston rods for long but this is the best of the ones I have owned. Lovely Smooth action. Doesn't need too much loading and handles a dry dropper set up really nicely. I was a bit disappointed with the original Air but this is a step up. Nowhere near as fast as some rods but I look forward over the summer to giving this a go with a dry fly. I think it will be awesome.
