R.L Winston - Air 2 9'6" 6wt
The 9'6" 6wt Winston Air 2 is the shop's favorite boat road when nymphing and hopper-dropper fishing. This rod has a ton of life and delicacy to protect light tippet, but has thorough backend power to turn over heavy rigs and horse in big trout. Reach casts, mending, and tippet protection are all huge perks to this rod. Although this rod on paper may seem like a stillwater rod, the on water performance in such venues is lackluster.
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.
