RL Winston Bamboo Fly Rod


Winston has been making BAMBOO rods since 1929, when Robert Winther and Lew Stoner first began innovating using split bamboo cane. We have patented the hollow-fluting bamboo rod building process, set numerous bamboo world distance fly casting records, and maintained an uninterrupted 92-year commitment to building the most beautiful, highest performing bamboo fly rods available anywhere. A Winston bamboo fly rod continues to set the standard for hand-crafted fly rod perfection. Each of our new bamboo fly rods can take up to a year to build. Cast one and you will experience a wonderful slow action with delicate line and loop control. Fish one and you will understand why anglers become devotees of bamboo and a part of the ultimate fly fishing tradition.
