Winston Air Salt 9' 9 Weight 990
When it comes to delivering clean loops at high speeds accurately, the Air Salt series is well equipped and easy to operate. This seven weight has found a home on the coast from Texas to Carolina for this reason, and is a beautfiful bonefish rod. It has "that-whoa" feel in hand, and is light and powerful. Comments across the board agree that the short range accuracy and efficiency is magic in addition to the long range. Don't be scared to get a little seaspray on that green stick, its built for it.
In bass world, these are some the finest topwater rods you will ever throw. We absolutely love them for use with floating lines and they are incredibly accurate and low fatigue.
Notes - We prefer these rods for floating line applications where pickup is quick, they work with just about any taper out there and are awesome rods for sight fishing to any species. Darts. Bullseye.
-Rio Elite Flats Pro matches like flip flops and a flats skiff. These tapers allow the caster to seemingly push the envelope when throwing for distance and accuracy with typical flats flies.
Big Streamer Hot Weather - There are a number of really good line choices for throwing big flies with the Air Salt, our favorite being the Rio Jungle during hot weather pursuits. It has a fluid taper that throws big flies easily and accurately. Available in a few sinking options, stick to the floater and the intermediate tip with this rod design.
Big Streamer All purpose - The Elite Predator from Rio is our favorite streamer taper and throws effortlessly on the Air Salt. Stick with the floating here and your topwater setup is locked in.
