The Winston Passport took 7th place in the 2011 5-weight shootout and was the highest placing "value" fly rod. It's got a great fast action without sacrificing the feel that Winston is famous for. It may not be green, but it's still a Winston.
Introduced last year, the Passport series is a line of fast action fly rods that offer unprecedented performance for under $250. These superb quality rods are available in a variety of lengths and weights, fish extraordinarily well and provide exceptional power without giving up touch and feel. The rods are a deep bronze color, and feature ruby wraps and a nickel silver reel seat with wood insert. All Passport fly rods come with a olive green cordura tube that is embroidered with the R.L. Winston name.
