Winston Rod Company in this photo essay by Ivan Orsic. “While this is a company rich in tradition, when I walked into their current rod building facility, I was struck by how intimate and “small-scale” the entire operation seemed,” he writes. “The term “small-scale” might be construed in a negative light, but it shouldn’t be. It’s impressive to me that a company can produce such high-quality rods and maintain that small business feel.” Via Trouts Fly Fishing.
