R.L. Winston capitalises on popularity of Boron III series

US fly rod manufacturer, R.L.. Winston, has introduced the two-handed Microspey models on the back of the success of the Boron III rod series.
↑ The new Microspey rods from R.L. Winston are designed to combine the power of a spey rod with the finesse of a trout rod.

R. L. Winston has capitalised on the popularity of its Boron III two-handed rod series with the addition of three light-line, two-handed Microspey models.

Designed to combine the power of a spey rod with the finesse of a trout rod, they are ideal for trout, land-locked salmon and smallmouth bass in moving water, says the US manufacturer.

Using the proprietary Boron III technology that the Montana company is so well known for, R. L. Winston has sought to introduce a versatile element into the specialist trio – a 10’ 6” three weight, a 11’ four weight and an 11’ 6” five weight.

Field test reports have been unanimous in praising the rods for their extreme sensitivity and deceptive strength, despite an ultra light feel.

“They are an absolute joy to cast, extremely sensitive and work great with small streamer patterns,” said one impressed field tester. “Add the slim cork handle and you could almost be using a single-handed rod.

“Anyone interested in spey fishing, who likes to feel the take and being connected to the fish should definitely investigate the Boron II two hander. They transmit every head shake of the fish.”
