This is one of the last rods to come out of the legendary R.L. Winston bamboo fly rod factory that tragically burned down in early May 2017. This buttery smooth piece of art comes with two tips.

Winston has been involved with BAMBOO since 1929, when Robert Winther and Lew Stoner began making innovative rods known for their craftsmanship and performance. Today, our commitment to this natural material remains steadfast. Each of these rods can take up to a year to build. Place one in your hand, and you will be holding over 85 years of cumulative knowledge and experience. Cast one, and you will experience a wonderful slow action, as well as superb line and loop control. Fish one, and you understand why anglers become devotees of our bamboo; the rods are highly accurate, feature incredible touch and feel, and can make extremely delicate presentations.
