New from Winston – The New Winston Air

AIR MT May+June 2017-small

THE LIGHTEST, FINEST PERFORMING FLY ROD WE’VE EVER MADE.

Introducing the Winston AIR. A new line of super premium, ultra-lightweight, all around fly rods which break boundaries in performance. These new Winston AIR rods feature new materials and a revolutionary new design. The combination of our new SuperSilica™ resin system with high modulus Boron means significantly less weight, more liveliness, an even wider casting range, and higher responsiveness for optimum presentation. These rods provide an amazingly smooth transition of power with any length of cast and incredible responsiveness and flex without feeling stiff.

A Review of Boron III Plus Saltwater Rods

DSCF2516

 By Louis Cahill
I have loved Winston fly rods since I cast one for the first time, but this is something completely different.
I just got my hands on a Winston B3 Plus 11 weight and took it to the Florida Keys for tarpon. I only own a couple of Winston fly rods but they have been among my favorite trout rods for a long time. When it came to saltwater, however, I have always favored rods with a much faster action. Anyone who fishes the salt will no doubt understand.

Jeff Currier Challenges Gabon’s Giant African Threadfin with the New Boron III Plus

It was a hectic winter of speaking at fly fishing shows and clubs.  I love doing these events but I squeezed in a few more than an insane man would have.  That being said, my shows went well.  Perhaps that’s because I knew there was a very bright light at the end of the tunnel.

Jungle Angler – Tsimane Agua Negra Diary

By Rodrigo Salles
Diary on the making of  Jungle Angler.BOLIVIA-EXPORT-1_57

Aug 4th
Starting the Journey

I left my home and office in Manaus, Brazilian Amazon, in a hurry, leaving the building of our new vessel for Marié River (www.marieriver.com) in the hands of my father, a retired engineer who had taken the task to help us to build the most modern and advanced ship in the Amazon in less than 5 months. I was on my way to meet our crew in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, for a new exciting adventure – filming the headwaters of the Agua Negra River (Black Water) in the far upper reaches of the mountain zone of Tsimane Indian Territory, a place where only two of our guides had reached once before, and came back with no words to describe what they experienced.
