The Winston Rod Company, located in the heart of wild trout fishing in Southwestern Montana, today announced the first of its new TROUTGAITERSTM designs as part of it’s flyfishing accessories program. These face and neck coverings provide a colorful addition to your face covering/gaiter collection while fishing, hiking or for a variety of activities. The beautiful new designs utilize a trout-themed approach to wearing neck gaiters. In fact, several of the new TROUTGAITERSTM incorporate the spectacular trout paintings of celebrated artist James Prosek. James donated the use of his artwork, and together with Winston and Bauer, we donated to Trout Unlimited in Montana to help with TU’s important coldwater conservation efforts.

According to Winston Sales Manager, Adam Hutchison, “We were first introduced to James’ paintings almost 15 years ago with Winston’s “Not Recommended by Big Fish Anywhere” campaign. We have introduced this new series of new gaiter designs not only revisiting this theme but with several new ones to be rolled out in the coming weeks. We are also introducing our Bauer Fly Reels Colorful Reels TROUTGAITERSTM.”
