Winston LT 8'9" 4wt.

Here is another Winston LT 4wt. (NOS blank), this time in 8'9" length. This blank was supplied by a fisherman in France I happened to fish with last summer. I have another one to build later this year for a friend (379). These blanks are hard to find and they are beauties. I especially liked the 479, second favorite after the TMF. The rod is finished in classic grade (and Winston standard) with green silk wraps and bright hardware. I came across the original box elder Winston seat and a very cool vintage stripping guide wich I thought were appropiate. Rod bad and tube are my standard. Thanks for looking!
