Trout Energy Fly Lines


WINSTON ENERGY FLY LINES. A true advancement.

Winston ENERGY fly lines were designed utilizing an entirely new scientific approach that enhances the energy transfer between the rod and line. By measuring the dynamic characteristics of fly rods at various flex points, we’ve applied an engineered system to precisely design lines that are ideal for each rod weight. The result is a series of lines that perfectly match the performance characteristics of today’s fly rods, cast and fish wonderfully, and provide anglers with optimized line control, accuracy and, most importantly, presentation.

    Fly lines are often overlooked by anglers when setting up a new outfit. The reel and rod are obviously important, but good fly line makes a rod perform that much better.

    For example: I’d never use a true-to-weight line on a Sage MOD or Bolt. Both of those rods are stiff enough to warrant a heavier line, like the MPX series from Scientific Anglers.

    So when fishing a medium-fast action rod it makes sense to use a line closer to the AFFTA standards for line and rod weight.

    Enter Winston’s new Energy Trout fly line series. Available in weights 2 – 6, it’s built just barely heavier than AFFTA standards (the 5wt line used in this review clocks in at 144gr. AFFTA standards for 5wt line is 140gr). That extra bit of weight helps the quicker Boron III X rod load up beautifully, and I even noticed a better performance from my Sage VXP with this line.

    The Energy lines have a standard head length, at 38 feet. The first 10 feet of that is colored brown, what Winston dubs a “stealth camo tip.” The idea is to give anglers more length of line and leader that’s either clear or dull-colored so as not to spook fish with the chartreuse running line.

    These lines are built by Scientific Anglers according to predetermined specifications from Winston. The standard high-quality SA line coating and printed line ID adorn the Energy line series.

    At $99 retail, the Energy line is a bit more than most lines on the market, but not by much. From the unique design, exceptional build quality, and presentation abilities, the Energy lines earns its price tag.
