Winston® Bamboo

BAMBOO IS BACK!
ONE OF THE GREAT ANGLING EXPERIENCES YOU CAN HAVE.

Winston Bamboo
Reel Seat: A or B or C

Winston has been making BAMBOO rods since 1929, when Robert Winther and Lew Stoner first began innovating using split bamboo cane. We have patented the hollow-fluting bamboo rod building process, set numerous bamboo world distance fly casting records, and maintained an uninterrupted 90-year commitment to building the most beautiful, highest performing bamboo fly rods available anywhere. A Winston bamboo fly rod continues to set the standard for hand-crafted fly rod perfection. Each of our new bamboo fly rods can take up to a year to build. Cast one and you will experience a wonderful slow action with delicate line and loop control. Fish one and you will understand why anglers become devotees of bamboo and a part of the ultimate fly fishing tradition.

Despite the tragic loss of the old Winston bamboo shop to fire in May of 2017, we are accepting orders to be fulfilled in 2019 in our new Winston bamboo facility.

The Tom Morgan Favorite

A GREAT FLY ROD IS ALWAYS A GREAT FLY ROD.

Tom Morgan Favorite Rod

Tom Morgan was the owner and rod designer at Winston from 1973 to 1991 and his legacy at Winston and for the entire fly rod industry cannot be overstated. We continue to believe in Tom’s principle that “a great fly rod is always a great fly rod”, so as we celebrate Winston’s 90th Anniversary, we find it only fitting to reintroduce the Tom Morgan Favorite.

First offered in 1989 as a limited edition 60th Anniversary model, the Tom Morgan Favorite Rod has proved to be so popular it has remained a Winston customer favorite for the last 30 years.

Tom grew up fishing the spring creeks of Montana for wary brown trout where the slightest mistake spooks the fish. He designed the “Tom Morgan Favorite” as a specialized 2-piece, extra light, 8’ 4-weight, made from moderate modulus graphite for those close to mid-range distances where delicacy, finesse, and accuracy are essential.
