    WINSTON PURE 490 FLY ROD : 4WT 9'0" 


    Winston PURE 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 PURE is how light this rod is. Next you notice that this rod feels 'alive.' Winston PURE rods 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 Winstons new SuperSilica resin system with high modulus Boron III 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 Winston has ever designed. 


    This Winston PURE 490 fly rod is simply the finest all-purpose 4wt trout rod on the market. This 4wt PURE delivers buttery smooth power and is a true pleasure to cast. This PURE 4wt presents a beautiful dry fly, whether it is 20ft or 80ft, and will still throw a streamer to the bank. This versatile 4wt will do it all on small to medium size rivers.


    • Advanced carbon fiber and new SuperSilica resin system
    • Classic smooth Winston Progressive Action
    • Incredibly accurate presentation
    • Boron III Technology for enhanced reserve power
    • Hard chrome snake shooting guides, chrome nano-lite stripping guides
    • Nickel silver reel seat with wood burled insert
    • Each Winston PURE rod is hand crafted in Twin Bridges, MT
    • Backed by the Winston Lifetime Warranty

    One of the Best Dry Fly Rods Around
    Steve (Florida) | April 11th, 2022
    I purchased this rod to be a dry fly specialty rod for a trip to Argentina. This rod delivered! It delivers the fly accurately and quietly. It also surprised me with the amount of backbone it had. Picking up 30' feet and casting 70' accurately was very comfortable. Longer distances can be achieved, but not as accurately. Then again this isn't what this rod is designed for. My opinion is that if you want to be "in touch" and accurate with the fly as you dry fly fish, then the 9' 4 wt. Pure is among the best rods in the market. Also, it is one of the prettiest rods you'll ever see!

    Nice Dry Rod
    RD (New Jersey) | April 22nd, 2021
    While Winston Rods are not cheap, the workmanship is top notch and 100% manufactured in USA. Very happy with the rod and look for many years of enjoyment.

    Probably the best length/wt combonation in the Pure series
    Daniel (West Lafayette) | June 24th, 2020
    4wt 9' Pure is softer and slower than NRX LP or Sage X in the same model, but that does not mean it is less powerful. The truth is, this rod can carry the line effortlessly to 60-80ft and, afterwards, land it delicately on the water without an alerting splash. Cast it before you buy it, and I believe you would love it!
