Winton LS Review:
At first glance the new Winston LS has the classic “Winston Green” color, impeccable craftsmanship and is very light in hand.  The LS is now available in Anodized Aluminum Nickel Silver with Graphite insert reel seat and Burled Wood insert.  The graphite insert is certainly a new look coming from such a historic rod company.  I personally found it to be a classy look with a touch of “New School” feel.

My first few casts out of the tube (Beautiful Graphite tube) with the 9’ 5wt LS where on the lawn with an Airflo Super Dri Elite WF 5F.  I immediately got the sense that this is a very special fly rod.  Winston calls this a medium-fast rod which I would agree with.  I found this rod to be very accurate at short to mid-range casts.  No doubt this new Light Series of rods are going to be excellent dry fly rods.  With this rod being a 5wt I opened it up for some longer casts.  The Boron technology is legitimate and casts in excess of 70+ feet are not a problem. 

Next was to test the rod out on the lower Deschutes last fall (November 2013).  I always like to bring a trout rod along while steelheading as I know with the right weather the chances of a great BWO hatch is very likely.  For 2 days I switched between the 2hander and this new 5wt LS.  As I thought this rod fished 12ft 6X leaders with #20 Olives beautifully.  The rod has plenty of power when the wind kicks up and certainly has the right action to protect light tippets and small flies.  The rod has more than enough in the bottom end to turn fish while the mid to tip sections protected the light tippets. 

I did also do some nymph fishing with this rod as I expect a 5wt to handle indicator, double fly rig and split shot.  No problem and with its medium-fast action roll casts are a breeze.

My overall impression of the new Winston LS is it’s certainly is a fine fly rod that is very light in hand, quite lively, very responsive and easy to fish.  I can see in the lighter models this rod series will become a favorite among serious Dry Fly Fisherman.

Choose your reel seat, if you do not choose we will send you what we have in stock.

Early Season Lake Flies

March is the month when lower elevation lakes start to wake up. The ice of winter ice is gone from many lakes in the Pacific Northwest. It is time to dust off the float tube or pontoon boat and get prepared to do some battle with some hungry trout. Many lakes also have large mouth bass, which are also starting to wake up. They eat the same critters as trout. Leeches, Chronomids, Water Boatmen, Damsel Nymphs and Dragonfly Nymphs are the main fare.
Our Fly Selection Is changing radically for the 2014 season. At present some of our online files are not up-to-date. Below is a partial selection of flies you will need to be successful on local lakes. We will keep you informed as more changes happen.

Water Boatman, Burke's Rojo Grande Midge, Red Goat Leech, Black/Red
Tak's Crystal Chironomid Chironomid Bomber Tungsten Thin Mint
Idyl's Chrome Chironomid No Named Damsel Q's Seductive Dragon
Chironomid Pupa Picky Fish Damsel B. H. Stillwater Nymph
Rojo Grande Midge, Olive Sierra Damsel, Olive Rickard's A.P.E. Gray
Rojo Grande Midge, Black Idyl's Red Head Leech Rickard's A.P.E. Olive
Many Pacific Northwest Lakes offer serenity and very large trout. The desert lakes of Central Oregon and Washington can be incredibly prolific in foods that grow trout quickly to very large sizes. Some privately managed fish-for-fee lakes offer trout that range to over twenty pounds that can be caught from float tubes. Fishing with 2X tippets is not that uncommon. Needless to say these trout aren't always push-overs. You better have the right flies. Our lake fly selection is always evolving. The patterns below are our latest additions. Each was added because of specific insight.

Water Boatman, Burke's
Water boatmen are reported to occur in fresh water through out most of the world. In certain local ponds lakes and reservoirs they occur in dense populations. In the edge water of many local rivers with habitats as diverse as the spring fed Deschutes to the glacial fed Sandy River, water boatmen populations can be very prolific. When other aquatic insects are still dormant from the cold of winter, water boatmen can be very

active. Water boatmen have the hind two pairs of legs fitted with hairs and the outer joints of the hind legs are oar-shaped which allows them to paddle and swim. Adults range in length from 3/16 to 3/8 inch long and are usually dull colored brown or olive. Water boatmen often swim in open water where they are easy prey for trout. They are comfortable in cold water and often a good choice for an early season trout fly in lakes. Water Boatmen are strong swimmers. Retrieve your fly with quick six inch strips. Water boatmen are often prolific in lake edge-water when the lake levels are high in early spring. The best line for fishing these areas is the Teeny 5' Phantom Tip.

Tak's Crystal Chironomid
Colorado fly fisher and Umpqua Fly Designer, Rick Takahashi considers midges the most important year-round foods source for trout and they are in almost every stream and lake around the world. The Crystal Chironomid is ulra realistic, and the last straw for spooky trout. Dangle one of these under your indicator.

Snow Cone Chironomid Pupa
This is the standard fly for fishing under a strike indicator. The real pupas often suspend in a vertical position. Thingamabobber Strike Indicators are very good for this type of fishing. Make a right-angle junction at your indicator. Be sure that the tippet below the indicator has been straightened. Cast it out and let it sit. Adjust the the depth of the fly until you find fish. Usually if there are fish around, it won't take long.

Picky Fish Damsel

As damsel fly nymphs mature, they turn darker and this is an average color in many lakes. The long, sparse marabou tail gives this fly a swimming action. Fish this fly very slowly. When Damsels hatch during mid-summer, use a floating & long leader in very shallow water. It is almost like fishing for bone fish.
