THE WTwas first introduced in 1987 and continues to set the standard for smooth, traditional action fly rods. These rods are perfect for fishing situations that involve technical casts at short distances. When casting to fish that are close in, an angler’s success often depends on their ability to make delicate, accurate presentations. The WT series is the perfect choice for these types of conditions. This series features our internal spigot ferrule system, which ensures that the taper and internal diameter of each section perfectly matches the adjoining section. This attention to detail produces a rod that is smooth casting and delicately delivers a fly with incredible accuracy. The progressive taper of the WT is a full-flex design, but the crisp and lively design allows for the application of additional power when longer casts are needed. This series perfectly defines the Winston tradition. No other fly rod series has stood the test of time like the WT. In many configurations, these rods still offer benchmark performance.
Widely recognized as the best pure dry fly rod ever created, the "Tom Morgan Favorite" offers unequaled performance for fishing small dries to selective trout on slick water. The subtle tip protects light tippets and provides wonderful finesse for delicate presentations with dries in close. Also very capable of swinging wet flies.
