Winston Air 2 9'6" 6 Weight 696
*Recent winner of best fly rod at IFTD 2022!
Long awaited, the 9'6" 6 weight is finally here. Winston and their team spent a very long time perfecting this rod. It is finished out in a classic style without fighting butt and is built to fish. For the wading anglers and those who find themselves in the water often while fishing, a slightly longer rod can really add another dimension to your angling capabilities. A couple instant advantages include more clearance for you loops and increased roll casting capabilities.
Like the other Air 2 rods, it handles a huge variety of lines. The extra length gives a lot of power, and this is a rod you can expect to handle nymphs, streamers, and dries. An all purpose taper such as the Rio Perception is a great choice for all around fishing on the lighter side. More aggresive tapers such as the Predator are ideal for streamers and heavier rigs. Sinking lines are a joy on this style rod and very easy to cast.
Finished in classic Winston form, the detail work in the components is sensational and each rod features a hook keeper. Burled Elder reel seat with western pattern nickle silver trim. Priced accordlingy, this premium rod is likely to be a top notch stick a few generations from now.
Made in Twin Bridges, Montana.
Includes Winston rod sock, graphite rod tube, and lifetime warranty for original owner.
