Dry fly and delicate presentation rods

The PURE series (2-5wt) won IFTD’s Best of Show for freshwater rods in 2018, and for good reason: The ability of these medium-action rods to present flies in a delicate and accurate manner is unmatched, making them perfect for technical waters like the Henry’s Fork, spring creeks and backcountry beaver ponds filled with wary brookies. The 2 and 3wts are perfect for small streams, while the 4 and 5wts are ideal for larger rivers and fish that still require a light touch. All rods come with our graphite tube and logo rod sock.

2wt: Meant for casting microscopic dry flies on the lightest tippet, and bends into the butt section with the weight of a small trout.

3wt: Fun rods meant for small stream fishing. From the ultra-short 6’6” version to the 7’6″, these 3 weights will excel at any small stream or extremely delicate presentation.

4wt: If you’re obsessed with feeding small flies to picky fish, our selection of 4 weight PUREs blend accuracy, delicacy, and fish fighting strength. Think any spring creek from Paradise Valley, Montana, to the world renowned Driftless area in Wisconsin.

5wt: From dry fly fishing on bigger western rivers, to light nymphing and small streamers the 5 weight PURE will provide the classic Winston feel in a taper that adds more accuracy and line control.

Pure FUN!

9’ 5 weight is just a dreamy, smooth, dry fly flicking machine. Fit and finish are spectacular. It sings with a true to weight line. I’m looking forward to many, many summer evenings with a handful of dry flies and my Pure. Thank you to the fine folks in Twin Bridges!

Pure Nine foot for a three

I live right on the banks of a Spring Creek and our freestoner is two blocks away. I have always been a huge Winston fan and this rod is perfect for light line dry and nymphing. I have to have a light drop on my presentations over our wild browns with PHD's and this rod is just perfect. It also has the ability to throw a light line over 50 feet when needed which is not often. Used to own an older nine foot two piece Winston for a three that was good with short lines but the Pure definitely is stronger in a manner that is hard to define. Also own the Air 2 in the same configuration which is a great all arounder but for those tough Spring Creek browns this is my go to taper. Thanks Winston

Pure 9' 4wt

I've been a Winston fan since before I could afford them. I grew up in Dillon, a short distance from Twin. I marveled at the emerald green wands I knew were out of reach for me as a kid in the 80's. Fast forward into the 90's and I bought my first Winston that I still own today and fish. The Pure series brings me back to the classic Winston feel, they're not a WT or an LT, but they fit in there somewhere. I paired them with Bauer RX reels, which are very well balanced for the Pure and Air series. The 9' 4wt is a stunner as is the 9' ft 5wt. Enough power when I need it, but more important to me is the ability to make light precise presentations on crystal clear Driftlesss streams. I routinely fish 6x tippet, and the tips are forgiving enough to protect it when I set up on larger fish.
