Who first handed you a Winston and said, “Here, give this a try?”

Was it your parents, or grandparents? Perhaps a professional fishing guide, fly shop employee, or your closest fishing friend? Regardless of who introduced you to your first fly rod, it’s a special moment that is likely to follow with a lifetime of fishing adventures and fond memories.

We believe that the only thing more special than receiving a new rod is receiving a new rod with a customized inscription. This holiday season, we’re doing just that. Until December 18th, with any new in-line Winston purchase through an authorized dealer, we’re offering a free inscription hand written by our professional calligraphers.

The 2019 Holiday Inscription special is limited to new, in stock rods purchased through Authorized Winston dealers. The following models are part of the free inscription program:

Pure, Air, Air Salt, Air TH, Alpha+, Boron III Super 10, Boron III Microspey

For discontinued and previously used Winston rods, we can inscribe these for a $50 charge plus return shipping and handling. To inscribe used rods before Christmas day, we will need to receive the rod before December 15th. Rush shipping may be necessary to guarantee delivery in time for the holiday.

Inscriptions are limited to 2 lines, with 18 characters per line. Character limit includes spaces between words.

Certain in-line rod models have a diameter too small for a name inscription. Rods models that we are unable to inscribe include:

– Pure 7’ 2 weight
– Pure 6’6” 3 weight
– Pure 7’ 3 weight
– Pure 7’6” 3 weight
– Pure 5’9” 4 weight
– Air 7’6” 3 weight

To place an order, contact your favorite Winston dealer and provide the rod model and inscription. A rod inscription on a new rod requires 3 business days to complete. Please factor in shipping times when placing an order as a gift. Deadline to receive orders for inscribed rods before Christmas day is December 18th.

Thank you for your business and support. Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions at info@winstonrods.com or by phone at 406.684.5674.


From all of us at Winston, we wish you a very happy Holiday season!
