Winston Pure Fly Rod
The Winston PURE - for those who prefer to fish with a light touch.
Whilst the Winston PURE is a moderate actioned presentation style of rod, it is far more capable than that. It has the unique blend of feel, accuracy, delicacy, and is ideal for light nymph and dry fly applications.
Darren's thoughts on the Winston PURE:
The most important feature of the Winston PURE for me is the smile on your face when you are casting it.
I work hard and appreciate nice things. What brings me joy when I'm fishing is being able to cast an a beautiful loop upstream with very little effort. The PURE not only delivers this in spades, it is also a joy to use when fighting a fish, offering wonderful tippet protection.
