Winston Rods Philosophy

At Winston, we refuse to compromise and have a true passion for doing things the right way. Since 1929, we have made not only the most innovative fly rods, but the most beautiful. Pick up a Winston, and you’ll be holding a rod with a flawless finish, precisely aligned guides, a perfectly formed grip, and a reel seat made from the finest components. Fish with one, and you’ll experience superior performance, as well as the remarkable feel that comes from a rod that’s lightweight, balanced and smooth. We know that anglers have many fly rods to choose from, but when the goal is to own the finest, there can only be one.

No matter what the material, Winston rods set the bar for the category and then some. This is true for our remarkable and groundbreaking Boron rods, which provide unmatched performance for every fresh and saltwater angling situation. It is true for our classic bamboo rods, which offer the kind of performance and craftsmanship that you’d expect from a company with 85 years of cane experience. And it is true for our new Nexus rods, which combine innovative all-graphite performance with Winston “feel” and smoothness. Boron, Bamboo and Graphite. Whichever type of fly rod you’re looking for, when it’s a Winston, it’s the finest rod you can own.
