The Winston LT 8'3" 4 wt fly rod is a wonderfully crafted rod with that silky smooth "soul" you expect from all Winston fly rods. The kicker on this one is that it is a 5 piece rod making it's packability out of this world. The soft tip allows for easy in close casting, line mending and roll casting, as well as allowing the angler to fish lighter tippet with confidence. This medium fast action rod definitely can load up for that longer cast when necessary. This would be the perfect rod for any California trout or backpacking enthusiast.
