Leland on the IM6 Series

The IM6 Series were the first rods designed and built by G. Loomis back in the early 80's. Crafted from graphite, these were one of the finest rod ever made. Their full flexing action gives the angler the advantage when presenting the fly with accuracy and delicacy. R.L. Winston Rod Company

Craftsmanship, craftsmanship, craftsmanship.... Winston has built one of fly fishing's best reputations through an unmatched attention to detail. R.L Winston is one of the oldest rod manufacturers in the world, and for good reason. Founded in 1929, the company was located on 6th street in downtown San Francisco, just blocks away from Leland. Raised in the Bay Area, Winston evolved on the waters and casting ponds that helped establish the area as a fly fishing Mecca.
Throughout the company's history they have stayed true to the idea that there will always be a market for those who appreciate fine craftsmanship. Soon after the company's inception their reputation as a high quality rod company blossomed. Within only a few years their rods were being used in tournaments throughout the United States. Winston bamboo rods quickly became known as some of the finest anywhere. Bamboo rods made in the San Francisco shop have become some of the most sought after in the world. Although the majority of rods produced today are graphite, they still manufacture bamboo. Only 100 bamboo rods are made by the company each year, a testament to the time put into their individual creation.

In the 1950's the company began to develop fly rods made of fiberglass. Created by one of Winston's true innovators, Doug Merrick, the 'glass' rods produced during that time have become collectables. Today, in an effort to enable the modern fly fisherman to taste what once was, the company reintroduced a fiberglass series of rods, the Winston Retro.

Winston has managed to employ their decades of experience building rods in the company's current rod designs. Maintaining the soul that has always been present in their rods, Winston produces some of the industry's finest graphite rods using the industry's most advanced materials. While at the same time maintaining the soul that has always been present in their rods. Today, Winston offers rods for every fishing application. They currently have over nine separate rod series. The Winston line can accommodate the needs and wants of every angler. Series such as the LT and WT represent some of the best mid and full flex rods available, where as the Boron IIx and XTR will impress anglers seeking a tip flex rod. Regardless of the model, if its soul you’re after, a Winston will deliver.
