The LT was first introduced in 1996, and continues to set the standard for multi-section rod design. This medium-fast action series is perfect for the discriminating angler who demands a compact design, but is unwilling to compromise on action or feel. The LT series features our internal spigot ferrule system, which ensures that the taper and internal diameter of each section perfectly matches the adjoining section. This attention to detail produces a rod that is smooth casting and delicately delivers a fly with incredible accuracy. The LT series is perfect for travel, touring and hiking, and the performance of these rods is unmatched.

Fly Rod Reviews
8'9" 5wt

I've been guiding in Rocky Mountain National Park for over eight years and it can be challenging finding rods that work in all applications. The Winston 8'9" 5 Weight LT is the rod that I go to for all personal and client needs through the guide season. This rod offers enough backbone to high-stick heavy nymph rigs in heavy water, but displays a great soft feel for those precise dry fly presentations. I would suggest this rod for those who want a great classic feel with modern day strength.
