Gear Review: R.L. Winston Boron IIIx 486-4

August 22, 2011
Author: Tucker Ladd

Catching the green drake hatch on the Fryingpan is one of the greatest spectacles found here in the Rocky Mountain West.  I was well prepared for such an event due to the fact that in my hand was a Winston BIIIx 4 weight, 8' 6", dry fly chucking machine.  The rod is light in the hand, extremely versatile and deadly accurate.

Gear Review: Rio Trout LT WF3F Fly Line

July 20, 2011
Author: Trouts Staff

Having been a fan of Rio's fly lines for many years, the Rio Gold and Rio Grand fly lines are fantastic.  Upon inspection of "line profile" I decided this is what I needed, a long body and front taper, wrapped around a extremely supple core.  I thought to myself that this thing should place a #16 Royal Stimulator into a 6" wide feeding lane with pinpoint accuracy, which it does...perfectly.
