The R.L. Winston Rod Company in Twin Bridges, Montana, leading manufacturer of the world’s finest fly rods, is extremely pleased to announce Bay Flats Lodge, located in Seadrift Texas, as the newest fly fishing lodge to be selected as a WINSTON PREFERRED LODGE®.

What began back in 1996 as simple weekend hunting or fishing trips to get to know the people they worked with better, Bay Flats Lodge owners Chris and Deb Martin have turned into the most desired outdoor sporting destination along the Texas coast. The business was officially named Bay Flats Lodge in 2001 as the Martins acquired a canal home in Seadrift that could house up to twelve guests each day. The lodge has since evolved into a gorgeous waterfront property situated on the shore of San Antonio Bay that can comfortably accommodate forty guests.
