The owner and rod designer at Winston from 1973 to 1991, Tom Morgan, created a legacy at Winston and the entire fly rod industry that simply cannot be overstated. Here at Aventuron, we continue to believe in Tom’s basic principle that “a great fly rod is always a great fly rod.” That’s why we are so proud to offer the Tom Morgan Favorite, a special rod designed to celebrate Winston’s 90th anniversary. This pro quality fly rod was first offered in 1989 as a limited edition 60th Anniversary model, and is normally only available through special request through the Winston company, but now it is available through Aventuron for any angler who appreciates a great rod. The Tom Morgan Favorite Rod has proven to be so popular, it has remained a Winston customer favorite for the last 30 years.
Tom was raised fishing the spring creeks of Montana for wary brown trout, where even the slightest mistake will spook every fish. For this purpose, he designed this rod, the Tom Morgan Favorite, as a custom 2 piece, extra light, 8’ 4-weight rod that specializes in delicacy, finesse, and accuracy. He crafted this rod from moderate modulus graphite for strikingly accurate mid-range distances where you just need that extra edge.
This legendary fly rod was created by a man who defined the sport of fly fishing and guided the great company of Winston from 1973-1991, a well known period of technological development and broadening of fishing horizons. This fan-favorite8′ 2-piece 4-weight with progressive action was designed for short and mid-range casts where precision and delicacy determine the outcome.
