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.
