The vast majority of trout fishing situations involve casts of less than 60 feet, usually far shorter. And when you're working a fish closer in, success often depends on your ability to make gentle, delicate, accurate presentations. For this reason, many experienced anglers consider our WT rods to be the perfect choice for such fishing. With progressive tapers, they work nicely at close distances yet can make longer casts when needed. Proven on trout waters worldwide, these medium-action graphite rods are incredibly smooth, offer wonderful touch and feel, and the tips are soft enough to protect 6x and 7x tippets while playing large trout.

FLY ROD REVEIWS
9' - 4-weight
"On the larger tailwater rivers like the Missouri and the Bighorn, stalking fish occurs often. The WT allows myself, or the anglers I am guiding, to get much closer to the fish than with most other rods. The casting stroke is a bit slower, but that delicate stroke allows for a presentation that is supple and unlikely to spook even the wariest trout. The sensitive tip allows a tough hook set with the confidence that your tippet won't snap. Fighting fish is fun because it's a Winston—you feel every move of the fish as the rod has just the right feel."

9' - 6-weight
"For 11 years I have fished with Winston fly rods and have found the 6-wt. WT to be one of the best all-around, do-everything rods that I have. From 200-grain sinking lines to light-tippet dry fly fishing on the Missouri, to nymphing big stoneflies on the Madison - this rod does it all. I am pleased that this rod is still offered after all these years and recommend it to everyone if they want just one rod, but of course, owning just one Winston is next to impossible."
