R.L. Winston has become a select Ocean Sponsor of this year’s American Fly Fishing Trade Association (AFFTA) Dealer Summit, the annual event for specialty fly retailers.

The Summit, now in its fourth year, is being held from October 15th to 18th in Bozeman, Montana – where Winston is headquartered.

“AFFTA is once again leading the industry in the study of best practice and is offering retailers the tools they need for the sustainable growth of their businesses,” said Jim Murphy, Winston’s Sales Manager.

AFFTA President Ben Bulis welcomed the partnership. “Winston has been building fly rods since 1929 and its continued commitment to bettering the industry and to its network of dealers is once again apparent by its sponsorship of the 2017 Dealer Summit.

“This is the only educational event designed for specialty fly retailers and their employees. The seminars provide the tools and ideas to strengthen and make their businesses more profitable.”

Winston will host the Dealer Summit Reception at the Bozeman Spirits Distillery at 6pm on October 17th.
