When you day dream of delicate presentation trout fishing, where does your mind wander? Some might imagine casting yellow humpies, stimulators, and Royal Wulffs on their favorite freestones.
Some might imagine undercut banks, beaver ponds, and giggling riffles on a secret cutthroat “crick.” Some might imagine a large pod of picky spring creek rainbows dimpling PMDs on a slow-moving current’s surface.
If these are your daydreams, we encourage you to explore our new PURE series of trout rods.
For those who prefer to fish with a light touch.
Advanced Boron III light line rods
Moderate action with quick recovery that allows for open loops for fine dry fly presentation along with the ability to generate faster line speed as required for different conditions
True Winston progressive action
Slim profile with fine grip and guide configurations for better connection to the rod
Proprietary design puts presentation and tippet protection as the first priority
Ideal for light nymph and dry fly fishing applications.
Reel Seat: Nickel Silver with figured Maple insert

Weights: 2wt. thru 5wt.
Winston Pure 2wt: The lightest, most delicate rod we make. Meant for happy-go-lucky streams, this rod perfectly casts microscopic dry flies on the lightest tippet, and bends to the butt section with the weight of a 7” brook trout.
Winston 3wt: An entire selection of fun rods meant for small stream fishing. From the ultra-short 6’6” version, to the extra reach of the 10, this wide variety of 3 weights will accommodate any small stream or extremely delicate presentation that an angler requires.
Winston 4wt: If you’re obsessed with feeding small flies to picky fish, our selection of 4 weight PUREs will be the perfect tools for presenting these specific patterns during heavy hatches. These rods blend accuracy, delicacy, and fish fighting strength. Think any spring creek from Paradise Valley, Montana, to the world renowned Driftless area in Wisconsin.
Winston 5wt: Anglers that prefer a traditional progressive action for most of their trout fishing needs, will love our selections of 5 weight Pures. With either the 9’ or 10’ model, there’s plenty of room for a variety of fishing applications, from dry fly fishing on bigger western rivers, to light nymphing and small streamers. If you’re a fan of our older IM6 and WT models, the 5 weight PURE will provide the classic Winston feel in a taper that adds more accuracy and line control.
Winston 10’: When presentation is still critical, but more reach is needed, our new 10’ Pure rods will extend your fishing. From fishing large slick water with dry flies, nymphing smaller water with tight line techniques and small indicators, and lifting more line and casting further on still waters the 10’ 3,4, and 5 weight Pure rods will increase your range without sacrificing delicacy.
