Another Winston

Here is another Winston LT beauty I just finished. I think these classic rods are among the best designs ever made and no other company has been able to replicate or to even come close to the sweet Winston "feel" in a graphite rod yet. 

I tell the Sage guys who still don't want to take the plunge into the new fiberglass rods that they should go for a good old Winston, even in used state. 

This time I was lucky enough to find a NOS blank for this project, and I have a couple more LT's from other sources that I'll have to build sometime this winter. And it looks like it's going to be a long winter.

This is a second project on the same blank. I love how this one came out. Simple, clean and sharp.

I casted this rod on the water before it was complete and I gotta tell you this rod is a trout fisherman's dream rod. I built it for a friend here in Romania and hope he's going to have a blast on it for years to come. Thanks for looking everyone!
