Winston Boron III-SX Fly Fishing Rods
SX Stands For Super Fast Action
This breakthrough new series was designed to truly handle the most demanding and extreme salt and freshwater fishing situations. And while SX stands for "super" fast-action, the unprecedented power and strength of these rods does not come at the expense of smoothness and feel. Whether you are making long casts directly into the wind, throwing big bulky flies or wielding an aggressive sink-tip line in steelhead waters, these rods will come through. They are unlike any other fast action rod made. Boron III-SX rods feature a superlight matte black reel seat with R.L Winston Rod Co. engraved on the barrel. The trout rods are available with the same wood reel seats as our Boron IIIx rods. The 9'6" 5 and 6-weight models have fighting butts for versatility and battling larger fish. All come with our graphite rod tube.

Bonefish Puff

On a recent trip to Andros South Bonefish Camp, we drifted up within casting range of a whitish streak of clouded water. It was being caused by bonefish rooting for food buried in the bottom of the shallow flat. Sometimes bonefish hydraulically excavate food organisms from soft silt by squirting jets of water from their mouths. This results in a cloud of debris which drifts with the current, sometimes for many yards. The cloud is called a "Mud". As we slowly approached the mudding fish, I offered a fly box and asked our guide Fredlon what fly to use.

To my surprise he pointed to a pattern which had been introduced to us by Derrick Muchamp on our first bonefish trip to Belize back in 1982, the Orange Puff. The fly was attached to the leader and cast blindly into the whitish cloud. After allowing time for the fly to sink, several jerky strips got a crisp strike. This and several more medium size bonefish fell for the fly in quick succession. When I asked Fredlon what the bonefish thought the Puff fly looked like, he replied with a big grin, "Pink jelly beans, man! Who can refuse them?"

Pink Puff
This is a variation of the fly attributed to Capt. Neil Bohannon which was first tied in the 1970's as the Mini Puff. The original was light pink in color. Our modification using slightly different colors has proven to be even more productive under many situations. Medium weighted with stainless steel bead-chain.

Rio Bonefish Quick Shooter

Big Bone Daddy Mark
Mark Bachmann with a Bahamas bonefish caught at Andros South. Bonefish take precise casting at variable ranges and require special fly lines for the best performance.
RIO's latest saltwater line is a real asset for the saltwater angler, and particularly useful for when wading flats, or in poor light conditions when short range casts are the order of the day. The short, easy casting head loads a rod quickly and delivers fast, accurate casts with ease. It is also an ideal line for the novice saltwater angler.
  • Revolutionary design allows for incredible loop stability and distance
  • Unique, easy casting taper that loads a fly rod at close range
  • High floating running line that will not sink and impede the cast
