R.L. Winston Rod Company has been a pioneer in the fly rod industry for nearly a century. From hollow-fluted bamboo and record-shattering distance casting rods Winston Rods carry a strong heritage.

The company has continued to innovate with the early use of materials such as fiberglass and graphite. Pioneering, harnessing and refining the unmatched power and performance of boron/graphite composite. These are just a few examples of how, for nearly 90 years, Winston has been responsible for some of the most groundbreaking advances in fly fishing.

In the third Under the Big Sky bonus segments featuring Winston Rod Annette MacLean, V.P. of Operations and Rod Design, takes us behind-the-scenes of the rod-making process.

Winston Rod is located in the small Montana town of Twin Bridges, which lies at the confluence of the Ruby, Beaverhead and Big Hole Rivers which form the Jefferson River. The small Montana town is a well-known fly fishing mecca.
