Our Thoughts:

The Winston Air 2 9'6" Air 2 is a great rod for someone who wants to be versatile on the water, but spends most of their time nymph fishing. It has the ideal length to make mending and high sticking easier, but isn't too long to hurt your dry fly presentation. The nice thing about this rod is it also has enough backend power to even be fished on stillwaters when it isn't too windy. 

Here's What Winston Has To Say:

This flagship series covers your 3wt. thru 6wt needs and has earned rave reviews from shop owners, guides, and anglers. Utilizing boron technology, AIR 2 rods make beautiful, accurate casts at long and short distances and have exceptional feel. The 3 and 4wts are superb dry and light nymph rods, while the 5 and 6wts are true all-arounders that can do everything from small dries to double nymphs to streamers. All rods come with our graphite tube and logo rod sock.
