Free Holiday Rod Inscription Until December 18th

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.


Presenting Winston’s 90th Anniversary Legacy Rods

2019 marks R.L. Winston Rod Company’s 90th Anniversary of building the world’s finest fly rods.  To commemorate this event, Winston is very proud to re-introduce a series of special edition Legacy Rods, which includes four of our most revered models.  Each Legacy Rod demonstrates our tradition of innovation and the famous “Winston Feel,” which have brought anglers back for their next Winston time after time.


The rods are hand-inscribed as special edition models and feature original specifications, including ferrule style, material and action. Our historic Winston Trophy label and unique uplocking nickel silver reel seat complete the definitive look.


Orders for the 90th Anniversary Legacy Rods can be placed through your Authorized Winston Dealer and will only be accepted through July 1, 2019.


News from Twin – March 2019


 “Anyone who chases Permit knows that it’s a high stakes game. There are so many things that have to go right in order to get your hand around the sharply forked black tail that we dream of seeing poking up on a shallow flat. It goes without saying that you need to have a rod in your hands that you “really like” when the opportunity to feed one presents itself. For me, the Winston 9 weight Air Salt fits that bill.”Steve Joyce from our friends at Red’s Fly Shop
